The watch party will include many Kentucky Derby traditions that are part of what makes this one of America’s favorite sporting events. Come dressed in your statement hat or southern best, drink mint juleps and eat Kentucky Derby treats. There will be excitement as you pick your favorite horse, bid on a custom piece of artwork designed by local artist Tom Roane, and a have a chance to win a $1,000 gift certificate from McCoy Jewelers.
Hillcrest Country Club’s Perry’s Grill will be the local Churchill Downs as guests watch “the most exciting two minutes in sports.” At last year’s party, the excitement didn’t end at the finish line when Maximum Security won, but was then disqualified, resulting in Country House being named the winner. Who knows what this year’s 146th annual Kentucky Derby will bring?
