    Default I am going to the Kentucky Derby!


    I am so excited and buying my tickets this weekend

    Just regular admission but still I am so excited

    Okay questions. I am going to look at childcare down there for the day anyone know how to go about that? I am not sure a toddler will enjoy race day correct? I heard it can be pretty crowded and lots of drinking? Or is there lots of kids and bringing her in a stoller really wouldnt be a big deal?

    Anyway, if you know of any local daycare places that are clean, friendly, and nearby the downs let me know!

    Also, anyone want to recommend the places to stay that are more reasonable?

    We are looking into staying on the base as we are military but thats about 30 minutes away.

    Also is there a thread about the possible horses going.... I am no expert but I can recognize some horses and Jockeys I think.


    Also give me any other important info! I am clueless

    Well, first of all on the childcare issue...Personally I cant imagine trying to find a sitter or reputabe day care that would take a child for one day. Usually there is a contract, health and shot records needed, etc. A good option would be to bring someone you trust with you, they could entertain her while you are at the races.

    The Derby is crowded, but you probably wouldnt be the only person there with a stroller.

    Hotels, which I could remember where I stayed...
