It’s only a matter of hours now before the start of the 140th running of the Kentucky Derby in Louisville, Kentucky. The 19 thoroughbreds competing in this year’s race--including 5-2 favorite California Chrome--should be ready by now. But if you’d like to prepare yourself a bit as well, track down one of the Derby-related mystery novels or short stories Janet Rudolph has listed in her Mystery Fanfare blog. It’ll undoubtedly take longer for you to read any of these tales than it will for the steeds to reach the finish line (the Derby is known as the “fastest two minutes in sports”), so get started now.
