After so many years of watching the Kentucky derby on TV we were excited to visit this beautiful historic site. The walking tour of the race track and grounds was very impressive. They said 165,000 people come on Derby day with the general admission open gallery area costing $80 per person. We of course had to have the official drink of Churchill Downs, a Mint Julep. It was very, very tasty. They told me it was made with Old Forester bourbon infused with mint, it is the Old Forester Mint Julep label. It has made me wanting another one.
