I worked at the Del Mar Racetrack in California many years ago for six summers. I was the first female security guard there and worked in the money room most of the time. I loved getting to the track early in the morning and seeing the horses exercise in the ocean.
On Saturday, May 2nd, Churchill Downs is hosting a day-long at-home Kentucky Derby party and matching up to $1 Million Dollars in donations to COVID-19 relief. Scroll down to find their schedule of social media and television content, contests, party decorations, food & cocktail recipes and more!
