Derby Day

(from an email to Patricia Geisler)
Big Brown, the Kentucky Derby favorite, will start on the outside at Post 20. The last Kentucky Derby winner to start at that position was Clyde Van Dusen in 1929. Your Grandparents attended that race. They drove to and from Louisville in their 1927 Ford Model A Roadster (with a rumble seat). (Originally emailed May 2, 2008) Youtube video of the 1929 race
