From Eccentric Derby Hats to Painted Derby Horses

The Kentucky Derby is right around the corner, and what better way to get ready to watch horses race than with these Kentucky Derby features?

I've never been anywhere near the "Derby," but I hear it's a helluva sporting experience. Throw in the big hats that are predominantly photographed in these Kentucky Derby features and you've got a mixture for a good time.

Implications - This collection of 12 Kentucky Derby features is one of the best that I have seen in a very long time. The culture surronding the Kentucky Derby has always been somewhat foreign to me and one that I never understood very well. After going through this cluster, I feel like I understand the nuances of the culture and have a new appreciation for the race.
