Live Wire: Krulik’s Derby, Day 2
My first visit to Churchill Downs’ legendary backstretch is in the rain. The pouring rain. But John Scheinman guides me through the sights and sounds and most importantly, the thoroughbred right-of-way.
All I kept hearing about from John was how great the biscuits and gravy were at Wagner’s, how great the biscuits and gravy were. Let’s go get biscuits and gravy! Of course, by the time we got there, they completely ran out of them. But we did meet trainer Jeff Bonde and owner Phil Lebherz at the table next door.
