Don't miss the tour👍🏼
A+ people watching. Skip the mint julep
luxury suites are surprisingly affordable outside of the derby -- book one ahead and ask for pat to man the room.
The finest place to watch the Derby? From the infield.
14 $ is a bit steep but it is interesting learning about the history. If you go once every 10-15 years then it's worth it. Great for young kids.
Kentucky Derby is where it's at!!
always glad too see my friends that come to my bar
#JDRFWalk to cure diabetes underway. Watch #wlky tonight for a recap.
This is a must see if your passing through.
After a week of posting on FourSquare, I was The Mayor of Churchill Downs on Derby Day! Top THAT!
I hate this large bright screen.
NO Credit cards in the paddock or infield. I wasn't in the clubhouse but from what I saw no credit cards for betting or food/drink. There are ATM's so make sure you at least have your debit card.
Spend more on good bourbon than losing tickets

The hot brown sandwich in the derby cafe is amazing
Make sure you use the betting app. Makes for a much more enjoyable experience. Just don't ask the paramutual clerks about the app. They hate it because "it is taking their jobs."
Bet from your phone!
Sing along with "My Old Kentucky Home."
Tip: don't play the ponies, dude.
Drink more bourbon.
Sit in the stands.
Beers are $8 inside, fyi.
Why are the drink lines longer than the betting lines?
You will enjoy every minute at The Oaks & The Kentucky Derby @ Churchill Downs. Dress to impress, enjoy the atmosphere and the passion of horse racing at its best
Welcome to the birthplace of the Kentucky Derby! Churchill Downs and its signature race were launched in 1875 by Colonel M. Lewis Clark.
Always box your exactas.
See the Museum and make sure you stay for a Race! It's one of those experiences you won't forget to be at such an old and historical sight! Secretariat was there! Barbaro! So many names!
song big party
Enjoy an affordable visit to Millionaire's Row for lunch during the regular racing season - but watch the races from the rail!
T&C editors enjoyed their mint juleps at this year's Kentucky Derby.
Drink a Mint Julep, do a tour of the infield for amazing people watching, then put it all on number 9!
Gotta try the infield at least once in your life time
If its Derby day, go to the infield. Find the outdoor techno club. Rage.

Mint Juleps FTW!
Get your Derby or Oaks hat made at Dee's!
Fastest two minutes in sports, and the most exciting! go baby go!
