27 Apr 2021 Kentucky Derby – Horse Country Connections
Ahhhhh, we are so very happy to return to the first Saturday in May! After an eventful 2020 – including the postponement of the Run for the Roses -we are thrilled to celebrate this year in a more traditional way.
One thing that stays the same, no matter what is happening on the calendar – is that with the Derby horses, there are always, always, myriad connections to Horse Country farms running in the greatest two minutes in sports.
