Usually I try to have some good stories or humor, but this time I would like to make a serious post.  The Kentucky Derby is still a ways away, but it will be here before you know it.  The Derby is one of racing`s biggest events, and draws a crowd of over 100 thousand people every year.  With that many people many things can happen, and it never fails at least one person will do something insanely stupid.  So I would like to take this time now to say “DON`T”  whatever it is you are thinking of please think twice.  Especially if you are going to do something like get drunk and run across the track.  This has happened a few times, and needs to stop.  Horse racing is not soccer, or some crappy award show for celebrities.  As a fan of horses and horse racing , watching people do this makes me angry.  You endanger the lives of both the horses and jockeys.  They should not have to pay for your stupidity.
