Whether you’re a fan of horse racing fan or not, you’ve likely heard the Kentucky Derby referred to as the most exciting two minutes in sports. While I can confirm the truth of this statement after experiencing first hand the running of the roses a few weeks ago, what you probably didn’t hear is that the entire derby weekend in the city of Louisville is an experience in itself. The excitement was contagious from the moment we touched down in Louisville on Thursday night. It’s no surprise that the city knows how to do it right though. After all, this isn’t their first rodeo — the Kentucky Derby has been going strong for 143 years.
