my old kentucky home lyrics, which is traditionally sung before the running of the derby by everyone in the stands. could be used in decorations, or even printed and placed at each placesetting along with menu
Derby Trophy made of gold was first presented in 1875. In 1924 the standard design was commissioned. No real changes were made except for jeweled embellishments for special anniversaries. But in 1999 the point of the horse shoe which had always pointed downward was changed to point upward.Churchill Downs officials decided to defer to racing lore ..that if the horseshoe is turned down all the luck will run out.
