This years post time for the Run for the Roses is 6:24 p.m. ET. the Rose Blanket refereed to in the name of the race is lovingly made of 564 red roses by our grocery store, Kroger. It takes them all the night before the race. In 2006 when this postcard project was created the first Saturday in May was the 6th and Barbaro won.
