We're just two weeks away from the first Saturday in May, and just a week away from the start of Derby Week here at ADTSTC. As is our tradition, we'll kick off Derby week with our 3rd Annual And Down The Stretch They Come Bourbon Thread. For those that are relatively new to the site, the bourbon thread is the place to discuss your plans for enjoying the Kentucky Derby with your favorite barrel-aged, corn-based distilled spirit. Whether you drink your bourbon in a Mint Julep, on the rocks, neat, or just straight from the bottle, The Bourbon Thread is the perfect start to Derby Week.
The rest of Derby Week will include a look back at some of the great races in Derby history, an overview of the wagering and payouts at the Derby since 2000, a live blog of the post position draw, staff picks for the Derby and Oaks (and the undercard stakes races), and, of course, open threads on Oaks and Derby day for all of your handicapping discussion.
