A memorable week culminates in the biggest day of horse racing Jeff Krulik has ever witnessed.
Since I was the last one in the media center the other night, I missed the van and had to take the employee shuttle. It was a memorable ride.
Just another day on the backstretch. A loose horse and Ruben Sierra are among the day’s sights and sounds.
For many at Churchill Downs during Derby Week, it’s business as usual.
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. Then, to Wagner’s Pharmacy.
