    Kentucky Derby

    I can't wait for the ponies to race on Saturday. Anyone else out here excited for the derby or ever been to it? And if you got some inside info on a winner, my bank account would appreciate it. Thanks.

    Love the Derby. I just finished making up a "20 Horse Pool" for my bar/restaurant. We draw the horses for each person so everyone has the same chance....and pay-out win ,place and show. Makes for a good time with a lot of laughs.

    Re: Kentucky Derby

    Going to the Derby is on my wife's and my "bucket list". While I've not been to the Derby I have spent a day at Churchill Downs. It is a great racing venue. Old wooden grandstand with lots of character. (And lots of characters) It kind of has aura about it. When I was young and dumb I passed up a free infield pass to the Preakness. (Followed up on some work project instead. Really stupid of me!!)
