Even if a person isn't a big horse racing fan, attending the Kentucky Derby is something that should be on everyone's 'bucket list'. Derby, as native Kentuckians call it, boasts a venue that is goose bump raising, and when those lovely animals walk onto the track supported by ankles not much bigger around than a wrist to 'My Old Kentucky Home', keeping a dry eye is a difficult thing to do. There is nothing like it. Congratulations to Animal Kingdom and all of his connections!
