The famous Kentucky Derby happens the first Saturday in May right here in Louisville at Churchill Downs. One of our neighbors here at the RV park told us that this was one of the tourist spots we should not miss. They have several nice tours. So we grabbed our Garmin Nuvi – found Churchill Downs and pressed ‘Go.’

We signed up for the ‘Behind the Scenes’ tour. First stop – the jockeys’ locker room and their ‘Silk’ room. These are all the shirts that the jockeys wear representing the owners of the horses. This is how they fly the owners’ colors. Pretty bright room eh?
Louisville Slugger Ever since Lynne and John went to the Louisville Slugger factory, Jim has wanted a bat engraved with Geeks on Tour. Pretty cool huh?
It was an interesting neighborhood too.
