Kentucky Life highlights Derby day. The career of Kentuckian Roscoe Goose who rode Donerail to victory in the 1913 Kentucky Derby; a look at Churchill Downs, which officially opened on May 17, 1875; the mint julep, the quintessential southern cocktail; and Zenyatta, the first filly ever to win the Breeders' Cup Classic are featured.
We focus on the things Kentuckians love in a program featuring basketball, chocolates, and more. We sample gourmet desserts, cheer on a boys basketball team, and enjoy the comforts of a popular bed and breakfast inn.
Opal's restaurant in McKee is famous for its cream pies. We also visit downtown Paducah, Tarter Farm and Ranch Equipment, the old Hawesville Railroad Station, and Cub Run Cave.
