The Kentucky Derby is one of the oldest continually running horse races in the world. The data set there is pretty expansive but I was amazed at how hard it was to find. The data I ended up using I scraped from a couple Wiki's and I have some other data that I may enhance this with later (such as Purse collected). For now though enjoy playing with my first ever blog post and my first ever Tableau Public Viz. Comments/suggestions welcome! @wjking0

Kentucky Derby Winners Viz
After attending #Data14 the Tableau Conference it came to my attention after a session from Jewel and Crew that I should start sharing out all my #WeirdData that I enjoy viz'ing? I hemmed and hawwed about what kind of viz to do so I figured I would start with one from Kentucky (my current home). Here in Kentucky we love three things above all else... Basketball, Bourbon, and Horse Racing.
