Short of a trip to Disneyworld there are not many things our kids will bounce out of bed for. Yet each year, days prior to the Kentucky Derby, our kids gladly rise at the crack of dawn to go to the backside of Churchill Downs and watch the Derby contenders train. I, too, love the chance to watch the sun rise east of the Twin Spires and watch these beautiful animals at their finest. The excitement around the backside of Churchill during Derby Week is extraordinary and in many ways very magical. On the first Saturday of May, celebrities, dignitaries and nearly the whole world converge on our city for the fastest two minutes in sports. Yet our kids are most impressed the few days before when they are able to watch up close the real stars of this event – the celebrities on all fours.
