There was also fake horse in the starting gate. You could dress up like a jockey and get on it.
Another thing I learned was that at the Derby people wear fancy hats. I saw a whole bunch of them. There were 4pink ones- woo hoo! I tried one on in the gift shop. It was $80, so I didn't get it. It looked good, though!
There was also a movie we saw called the great race. It was about horses and how they race.
