At 4:00 pm eastern time, the all-day local Louisville coverage of the races at Churchill Downs on Derby Day switches over to the national dudes and dudetttes on the television and focuses on the 139th running of the Kentucky Derby . Now that I'm finished with the FDL, I'm going to grab some snacks and settle in for the big race and all the hooplah.
Come on in and join the conversation!
