The Kentucky Derby will kick off Saturday, May 1, 2010 for the 136th time, and Sirius XM Radio has all of the coverage you need to check out the odds, and get the inside scoop about the fastest two minutes in sports. People have been arriving in Louisville for the last two weeks, donning their fancy hats and sipping mint juleps. Over 150,000 are expected to attend the event live.
Sirius XM will kick off the action at 1:00 PM ET with a Down The Stretch race preview show on Sirius 126 and XM 243. The action will continue live with coverage of the race on ESPN Radio's Sirius 120 and XM 140.
