March 17 (Reuters) - The Kentucky Derby, the first jewel in North American horse racing's Triple Crown, scheduled for May 2, will be postponed to Sept.

5 due to the coronavirus outbreak, Churchill Downs racetrack said on Tuesday.

Only once before was the 'Run for the Roses' postponed and not contested on its traditional first Saturday in May slot, when it was delayed a month in 1945 because of World War II. (Reporting by Steve Keating in Toronto; Editing by Alex Richardson)
