One of the treasures of Kentucky. – the 1st Saturday in May when the eyes of the world are fixated on us, the Commonwealth.
What’s your favorite part? Is it the sight of the Twin Spires? Getting dressed up, picking out or making that special Derby Hat? Heading into the fun of Infield? Placing that all important Trifecta bet? Hitting it?! A Mint Julep? A piece of Derby Pie? The call to the post? Singing “My Old Kentucky Home”?
Or how about those horses? When you hear “Riders Up!” and then those masses of sculpted muscle make their way onto the track and into the starting gates… are you getting goose bumps right now? Then those beautiful creatures explode out onto the dirt to fly around the track in “the most exciting two minutes in sports”. Coming out of turn 4 to battle down the final stretch – mmm-hmmm, this is Kentucky.
Whether it’s your favorite Derby tradition or a particular horse – who says you have to pick just one? We say “All of the Above”! WEEP NO MORE Kentucky! The Derby is coming! Celebrate the 141st running of the Kentucky Derby with us!
