Who Were They If you don't know them, It is not a crime. Some outraced the wind Decades before your time, Obtained fame and glory The spinning world 'round As their feet, like lightning, Sped over the ground. Old Rosebud and Wintergreen Were the fastest ever seen. Gallant Fox and Twenty Grand Won acclaim throughout the land. Whirlaway and swift Citation Captivated a great nation. Riva Ridge and Foolish Pleasure Brought to their proud owners treasure In races not for beginners— All Kentucky Derby Winners!
