Photo Friday: Churchill Downs #ACPA12

I already shared with you pictures of downtown Louisville from my recent trip to #ACPA12. On Sunday afternoon before the conference was in full swing, Steph and I ventured over to Churchill Downs. Churchill Downs is the racetrack for the Kentucky Derby horse race. There’s a museum about the Kentucky Derby and will admission to the museum, there is a short walking tour of the Churchill Downs grounds. This outing was fun. Without further ado, here are my pictures from Churchill Downs.

We watched a great film to introduce us to horse racing and the Kentucky Derby. The screen was in the oval shape of the race track.

Applies to so much more than just horse racing.
