  • Derby brings attention to horse racing, Kentucky

    Flowers in bloom, the sound of hooves thundering down the track, the whinny of a horse, the big and colorful hats, the taste of Derby Pie, the sweet sounds of “My Old Ken-tucky Home” playing in the background, the bugle call to the post, and “They’re off in the running of the 143rd Kentucky Derby!”

    May is a very special time in Kentucky, and although this year’s Kentucky Oaks and Derby may be a little on the rainy and cool side, there is nothing like it in the world.
