|Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs.|
If you’ve spent any time in Kentucky you know it is a beautiful state with green rolling hills, gorgeous lakes, spectacular mountains to the east and amazing meadows and fields covered in that famous Kentucky bluegrass.
You will also pick up on something else there, it's that there are two things Kentuckians are passionate about, Basketball and Horse Racing. You can’t live in this state and not fall in love with both and if you’re born there it is in your DNA. There’s just no getting around it.
This time of year, basketball is behind us for the season and it's time to focus on horse racing and The Derby. “The Derby”, what can I say? Its just the most spectacular event ever! People dressed in their finest, ladies in their hats all with mint juleps in hand and the most majestic of animals, the thoroughbred race horse, all on display.
