5th Annual It’s my Derby APRIL 17, 2015

Posted by Will A. Davis

We wanted to present a quick hitting press release for this event  because we were super impressed with both Louisville  and Lexington, Kentucky. This is an ideal time to visit the racing mecca a get a good taste of the racing world (and world class restaurants) because it is two weeks before the zaniness (but great fun) of the Kentucky Derby.  The host and guests names speak for themselves all legends to the sport.

At the historic Keeneland Sales Pavilion in Lexington, future Kentucky Derby winners have been sold to the highest bidder and gone on to greatness in winning the World’s Greatest Race. Names such as I’ll Have Another, Animal Kingdom, Big Brown and War Emblem have all pranced out of that sales ring and into the history books.
