Derby Day Is Here

“The Derby is the supreme hour of a supreme creature, a moment in which most falter and one transcends. It is not the richest race, not the longest, nor the fastest, but for many, it is the only race.”
—Laura Hillenbrand, in her essay “The Derby”

I won’t be watching the race today. But I will be hoping that each and every horse makes it through the big show without incident—no injuries, no accidents.
