It's Kentucky Derby week -- the biggest week in thoroughbred horse racing.

And it all begins for Ohio Valley horse racing fans with Opening Day at Mountaineer Casino, Racetrack and Resort.

Post time is 7 p.m. on Tuesday in celebration of the Kentucky Derby.

A special afternoon of racing will begin at 2 p.m. on Saturday that will end in time for everyone to watch the derby.

"That's the biggest 2 minutes in our sport, that's equivalent of the Super Bowl or the World Series,” Jockey Keivan Serrano said. “The best horses in the game go to Kentucky to ride in that race. All tracks around the world, you get big crowds, so definitely come out to the 2 p.m. post. We have a nice card that day too so should be a nice day."

If you want to watch the Kentucky Derby, look no farther than WTOV. Coverage begins at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday.

Mountaineer will be the home for the West Virginia Derby again this year Aug. 4.
