One of my favorite things about living in Kentucky was Derby Day.  Sunny days, mint juleps, derby parties, mint juleps, great dresses, mint juleps, flamboyant hats, mint juleps, and, oh, yeah, the race. Every year on the first Saturday of May, the spotlight is on Churchill Downs.  It’s considered the greatest two minutes in sports. This is the premier event to the other two Triple Crown races.   It’s the Run for the Roses. It’s heart-pounding exciting as you watch the thoroughbreds race
