Churchill Downs starts back up in October and welcomes the Breeder's cup in early November. With that in mind, I'm continuing to look at the landmark sports venues in the city of Louisville.
For the past couple of months I've been occasionally throwing out iconic athletes from Louisville. Sports legends of the Ville I called the series. But, I'd like to add to that series, sports legends of a different variety; the iconic buildings and arenas that made the city's historic sports past what it is today.
Louisville has become synonymous with the Kentucky Derby, but who was it that made the Derby City the Derby City?
The venue was packed full, and Kentucky Derby Jockeys Johnny Velazquez, Rosie Napravnik , and Julian Leparoux were all behind the bar slinging Woodford Reserve and French Manhattans.
You think I know when I’m going to fall off a horse? No, sir, you’re absolutely wrong. If I knew it was coming, then I’d prevent it from happening. When I’m falling, the first thing that happens is a feeling of shock.
The Shelbyville Horse Show, named “Best Horse Show in the Country” opens Wednesday, July 30 and runs through Saturday, August 2.
