Sunday, September 2nd - After the tour at Wild Turkey in Lawrenceburg, KY, we continued on to Louisville.  Churchill Downs was on our list to visit.  We love to say "We were there" whenever we watch commercial featuring major landmarks and so proud that we have been to all those places!  It was already late in the day when we got there because we saw employees (people in uniform and badges) leaving the building.     
According to the website,, there are regular live racing schedules besides the world famous Kentucky Derby (May 3, 2013 is the next scheduled event).  Someone once told me do not blink when watching the Derby or look away from the television screen because I would miss the whole experience since the entire race lasts about two minutes!
There is a gift shop inside the building but we did not go in.  I personally was surprised that the surrounding area was a bit unflattering compared to the display of wealth, well-dressed people, ladies with their decorated hats, and beautiful horses shown on television during the Derby.  We did not stay long enough so it is not my intention to make any judgement on the neighborhood.  I am sure the benefits generated by those in attendance spent in one day at the Derby would help provide the income for the people living in the community.  Come to think of it, the winning horse is worth much more than my entire life saving!    
This week biggest Turkey goes to the Deputy Turkey (aka the Joker, the Hyena who constantly created distraction with interruption and idiotic laughs, the frustrated liar who got upset because smart people refused to accept his lies).  The race is on and it is time to replace the show horse that run an incomplete race with a new jockey getting to the finish line.
