If ever there was a native son of Derby City worth laud and laurel…well…duh. Reflections on Hunter S. Thompson’s 1970 short story “The Kentucky Derby is Decadent and Depraved” as we gear up for anudder bout of deep debauchery and fast horseflesh.
It is Derby week and the Derby parties have begun. We attended Monday's Second Stride Derby Party fundraiser at Molly Malone's. It was an affair supported by those in the thoroughbred horseracing industry.
Yesterday, I took a look at past Derbys and movies that go along with each era. Essentially, I’ve been taking a look at the winners, interesting facts, and assigning a horse racing related movie to every decade and that brings us to today, where we’re up to the 1950’s.
