Plan your Derby Parties Accordingly

We’re almost exactly 1 month away from the Greatest Two Minutes in Sports, the Run for the Roses, the Brightest Jewel of the Triple Crown, The Kentucky Derby! By now you should have found a fabulous hat, stocked your bar with the finest bourbon, and put the burgoo on to simmer. But if you need to brush up on your history and knowledge to impress the handicappers (or just the dude in your office running the pool) The Kentucky Derby: How the Run for the Roses became America’s Premier Sporting Event shows how the Derby is more than just a horse race—it is an experience enhanced by familiar traditions, icons, and images that help Derby fans to understand Kentucky and define themselves as Americans. Join us at any of these great upcoming events to learn more, speak with author James C. Nicholson, and have your copy signed before the horses are called to post!
