00:00:00 00:00:02 Hello my dear students, the Kentucky Derby is coming up.
00:00:03 00:00:05 Isn't the derby a hat? -Yes.
00:00:05 00:00:08 So it's a bunch of people in Kentucky wearing hats?
00:00:08 00:00:11 No no, it's a horse race. -But you said a derby was a hat.
00:00:12 00:00:14 I did, ok let me explain.
00:00:14 00:00:15 Hot for words.
00:00:18 00:00:21 The derby is the American name for a dome-shaped hat
00:00:21 00:00:24 that the British call a bowler but it started out
00:00:25 00:00:28 as a name for a horse race. The 12th Earl of Derby
00:00:28 00:00:31 back in the late 1700s was married
00:00:31 00:00:36 but was more interested in staying away from his wife... -Hey!
00:00:36 00:00:40 he took up an interest in horses, interesting choice.
00:00:40 00:00:45 He started a horse race and named it the Derby after himself.
00:00:45 00:00:48 The race became so popular that when Kentucky
00:00:48 00:00:51 wanted to have a horse race a hundred years later
00:00:51 00:00:55 they name it after Derby as well. -Ok but what about the hats?
00:00:55 00:00:59 Well after the Civil War some Americans were watching
00:00:59 00:01:01 the horse races back in England... -Hello!
00:01:01 00:01:03 ...and they noticed the funny looking hats
00:01:03 00:01:06 the British wore there. They took a couple back to New York
00:01:07 00:01:11 and copied them and then they decided to call them derbies
00:01:12 00:01:15 after the race. -Ok cool, so the Kentucky Derby
00:01:15 00:01:17 is a bunch of people running around in derby hats.
00:01:18 00:01:21 No it's a horse race. I give up.
00:01:21 00:01:23 For your homework will you be watching
00:01:24 00:01:26 the Kentucky Derby coming up on the second?
