  • 5-4 Derby Brunch 4 .jpg RAAC gives White Hall its own derby

    Most of the ladies wore extravagant hats, and the men were dressed in rather sporty attire.

    The crowd got misty eyed as they listened to a choir sing “My Old Kentucky Home.”

    And little guys rode horses at an iconic Kentucky location.

    The food was pretty good, too, including the obligatory hot brown and chocolate pecan pie.

    This was neither the Kentucky Derby or Churchill Downs, however.
