Churchill Downs 🏇🏾 // Thurs., May 2nd, 2024

Happy Thurby! 🥃🏇

As we inch (or rather Furlong) ever closer to the big race, we have arrived at the popular Thurby of Derby week.

In case you're thinking, " What the heck is Thurby?" Are you guys at Turtle Sports drunk?

On the second question - no comment.

On the first—well, according to the folks at Churchill Downs...

"Thurby celebrates the heart of Kentucky's culture, bringing together the trifecta of bourbon, Bluegrass, and thoroughbred racing."

You're on your own for the bourbon and bluegrass parts, but we might be able to help with the thoroughbred racing part. Today's 12 race card will be highlighted by:

R9: 250K Kentucky Juvenile

5 Furlongs on dirt for 2-Year-Olds

R10: 200K St. Matthews Overnight S.

6 Fulongs on dirt for 4 year olds & up.

R11: 350K Opening Verse S. in R11

1 mile on the turf for 4-year-olds
