Derby Day Is For Kentuckians

Derby Day Is For Kentuckians

From “Pinstripe Pulpit” by Alan Cornett

SW: We lived in Louisville for 5 years, about a mile south of Churchill Downs.  I remember clear spring mornings when we would put the kiddoes in their seats on the back of our bikes and ride up Southern Parkway and over to the Downs to watch the horses work.  Some of God’s most magnificent creatures!

I’ve never been to the Kentucky Derby. I hope to go someday, but if I never do Derby Day will still be a special day. Someone stated that Derby Day is like St. Patrick’s Day for Kentuckians. I think this is right. It’s especially true for those of us in the Kentucky diaspora. Derby Day is Kentucky Day.
