Is anyone going to Churchill Downs? Tickets are sold out but I'm thinking of going because I've always wanted to go to the derby.

Avalon,
Thank you for posting the pictures of QEII with former Presidents of the USA. My favorite picture is the one with the late President Ford. Both of them appear to be having a wonderful time dancing.

My husband and I are thinking of going with some hesitation. The Derby normally draws close to 100,000 spectators - I think this year, with good weather and the Queen, the number will most definitely go up! Something to consider....
