The Galt House Ballroom was decked out like I hadn’t seen it before on Tuesday night. The food was extravagant — hot brown casseroles, shrimp, catfish, roast beef, desserts — and first class. There was a bluegrass band, a game room and overflow seating in the hallway.
Retired jockey Pat Day (pictured here) signed autographs for two hours. The Derby Museum displayed its most prized possession – the priceless first-ever Derby trophy, from 1924. The Frazier Arms Museum, the Ali Center, Slugger Museum — they all put on a big show.
It was a pretty big party that went on for two hours. A party without alcohol.
