Road To The Kentucky Derby

For a Kentucky Derby fan, January is the dark night of the soul. It’s the in between time, shoveling snow, salting sidewalks and driveways, while dreaming of tulips and the smell of roses on the first Saturday in May.

One is encouraged by hope that happier days lie ahead and it’s comforting to know that the road to the Kentucky Derby is officially opened when Turf Writer Jennie Rees of The Courier-Journal writes her scouting report.


  1. It's cold in Canada...but it looks like Hotep's credentials are heating up at Fair Grounds. Big win on Monday!

  2. Keith,

    I saw that. Maybe Derby fever is taking hold. Please let me know if you hear any news about a bid for the Derby. Likewise, if I hear anything, I'll pass it on.
