Here's a better photo of the new Pat Day statue in the back paddock area of Churchill Downs. If you want a great pic of Pat standing next to the statue and some more details, Bloodhorse has all the news and info right here If you are interested in purchasing a replica for charity, here's some more info on that deal.

Here the historic plaque located about 20 feet away from Mr. Day's new honor.

Well, it's time to call it an official first day here in Louisville. Every second I am in this city, my adoration for the people and place grows ten-fold. I never realized how great of a sports town Louisville actually is. With major music venues attracting most top (or at least interesting) bands, I would seriously consider a move here if the right opportunity to make a living happened to arise. Mom, I think I'm falling in love.

To officially end the day, I ventured downtown where I capped the day off with a visit to The Seelbach bar/restaurant located inside the Seelbach Hilton. I felt it was my duty to support some of the proud sponsors who support our great sport.

Ending the day with a bit of Woodford Reserve on the rocks seemed like a fitting closing act to an amazing 1st day - I felt it was my duty.
