We then went to Churchill Downs- of course famous for the Kentucky Derby horse race each spring. The building is huge! We were shocked at how big it is.
One top tip - we didn't have time for the walking tour as we really needed to hit the road. We spoke with a lady at the gift shop who told us to go to gate 17 - where we could pay $2 and could then view the track. (It's a top tip as the information desk told us the only way to see the track was via the tour). So we went to gate 17 and got to see the track and walk among the seats. We could just imagine all the men and women dressed up watching the race and drinking mint juleps. And of course I thought of my friend, Grace, who I think about each Kentucky Derby day!
