We decided to go to the derby just hours before. We parked in the Papa john's parking lot for free. Got out, walked with others to churchill downs.
People selling t-shirts and other items. After we get checked by service men. I remembered not to carry all my stuff . We head for the infield. We walk around people laying on towels. We do see the track. A man with a track derby hat that twelve people could get under . I had to go over and have my husband take a picture. Everyone are very friendly. We find a place in the shade to stand. As we walk again, we see a pile of something ,built like a mountain.
Super heros past by and again,, I must take a picture with them. One of them , put me on his knee. We walk again and here comes the paper hat folks. ( yes another picture) I decide to take a picture with the churchill downs track and building in the back ground. Two guys run and get in the picture as if I know them. I have a very understanding husband. :) I finally bet on the horse in derby and I won!!
Don't ask what horse or derby, I need to look that up. I have only been to the Derby twice and I lived here all my life. Never miss on tv. Churchill Downs is a wonderful place. Don't make betting your living, make it fun!!
