Churchill Downs

Kentucky Derbyville - horses, horses, horses

The inner track is covered to get ready for the big race and if you don't know what the big race is well, you are not from Kentucky!
The buildings are to keep the horses happy so I'm just guessing that they probably have cable TV, saunas, air conditioning etc., because the rest of this place is pretty nice!

Yes, the viewing stands have green folding chairs! In the picture below you can see the new Papa Johns University of Louisville Stadium that is right across the street from Churchill Downs!

Here is the front of it with the big bats.
Inside Churchill Downs we found some betting going down on the big screens
"Horsey, horsey on your way, we'll be together for many a day, so let your tail go swish and your wheels go round, giddyup, you're homeward bound"!
You know for me, horse racing is on the same level as dog racing or any other type of gambling, it just isn't my cup of tea(and I don't drink tea either)! But, they have a beautiful place for the horses to run and people to spend money!

  1. Look at all your posts. Very detailed. I'm glad that you had a great trip. We miss Katherine and Taurean. We missed you too when you were gone. Glad to have you back. I was hoping to see a picture of you and Katherine placing bets while wearing big hats.
