The Run for the Roses

Yes, it’s time for the 138th annual Kentucky Derby.  The first Saturday in May is Derby time every year.  In a normal year this is the day when Kentucky gets the most attention, but this year we’re enjoying more than one red-letter day; we had two around the beginning of April, for the Final Four basketball games involving the University of Kentucky.

Recently a book came out that the local radio stations are talking about:  “The Kentucky Derby: How the Run for the Roses Became America’s Premier Sporting Event.”  it covers everything you ever wanted to know about the Derby (aren’t you sorry you asked?).  Click on the above picture to check it out.

For those who aren’t interested in horses, there are other things to celebrate.  Today is also Cinco de Mayo, for instance.  So have a great weekend, whatever the occasion!
