Spring is here!

Spring has finally made it to Louisville, and you won't find a happier person than me (maybe). I adore warm weather, flowers, and even mowing the grass. Springtime means new life and fresh starts for me, and I wouldn't have it any other way. In honor of the warm weather, here are a few postcards  from our collection showcasing Churchill Downs. It is Kentucky after all, and you can't have springtime without the Derby.
