Perfect weather for the locals and all of those who came from around the world for the KY Derby

The crowd from Churchill Downs is long gone, but many will remember Kentucky Derby 134, for a long time to come.

Perfect weather for the locals and all of those who came from around the world. John Roberts says, "It's absolutely everything I thought it would be and then some."

Brenda Roberts says, "it's a lot of fun, very interesting people watching. More than anything else people watching."

And a lot of people to watch, among the 157,000. Walking through the crowd.  Jeff and Mimi Post came from Omaha, Nebraska.

Jeff Post says, "It has been my wife's dream for as long as I've known her, which is about 20 years to come to the Kentucky Derby."

Mimi Post says, "Oh my stars, I am having the best time I could ever imagine, the people watching, the Mint Juleps, we're having a ball and winning too."

But don't drink too many and don't get out of hand there are a lot of people to keep the peace! A well behaved crowd, and by most accounts a happy crowd. You didn't have to have a winning ticket, to cash in on the Derby fun.
