A Historic Day at the Races

A Historic Day at the Races

LOUISVILLE, Kentucky—

The first horse race I attended turned out to be historic. Among the freshly cut red roses, the shadow of the grandstand and twin spires, a sea of pastels and seersucker – sundresses, bowties, sun hats and the like – it was the number eighteen horse in green and yellow silks that stood out. 

The 141st Run for the Roses was a scene, a show, a drama – fully living up to the classic Hunter S. Thompson short story. The record-setting 170,513 in attendance made it seem like the entire state of Kentucky was packed into Churchill Downs.

American Pharoah won the Kentucky Derby I saw, the first leg of his Triple Crown run. I'll never forget that day at the races when I became part of history.
