(The look of a winner / All Photos by Holly M. Smith)

Editor’s Note:

We are in the final turn and headed full speed into the final stages of Kentucky Derby Week 150. Imagine that, just for a second. Consider this, just as you pause. This will be the 150th Kentucky Derby. One. Hundred. And…Fifty of these amazing races.

I remember vividly the 100th. More on that to come later.

I can’t remember the 50th, which was 100 years ago come Saturday.

And, I can only imagine the very first one. A different day. A different age. A different time.

But the same race.

Here’s the Photo Booth from Wednesday.
