    That is the oldest continuously run sporting event on earth.

    Will it be the same if run in September? Hell you could do that in North Carolina.

    Nowhere close to the same. Our family has had a Derby party for as long as I can remember.

    They did postpone it once before, that I know of, but it wasn't near that long of delay.

    Crazy that Thunder will be in August. There’ll be some sweaty wiggers and south end families all over the place.

    Never been PPD. The Preakness and Belmont have. But never the Derby. It has ran interrupted since 1875.

    It was postponed in 1945 because of WW2
