(WHAS11) - A Derby tradition takes on a new look with a new competitor in the Great Steamboat Race!

The Belle of Louisville was the victor and it beat the Belle of Cincinnati by five boat lengths!

This year's race was a little different from years past.

Each boat had to perform a series of tasks instead of just racing down the Ohio River.

The race took almost two hours to complete, but the Belle of Louisville is the victor winning the race in about an hour and 40 minutes.

The Belle of Louisville wins silver gilded antlers.
