Thurby at Churchill Downs 

Derby week is a very special time of the year here in Louisville, Kentucky.

Thurby is a portmanteau for Thursday plus Derby, and this name for the Thursday racing in Derby week has been recognized by Churchill Downs since 2014.

The days leading up to this week are filled with outfit shopping, nail salon visits and hair appointments.

Offices and schools close and everyone either spends their days at the race track or at elaborate parties. It’s a fun time!



A lot of people choose to arrange transportation this week

This is an indoor area filled with all of the luxuries Churchill Downs has to offer

If you bet and win, the day is even better!
