COOL, boronia! Be sure to PM Alex; maybe he and his wife could meet you for lunch or dinner; and if you can't get to Louisville, I can run down there--no problem. I do hope that your only days are not going to be the 13th. and 14th.--I'm going to Chicago then, barring something unexpected. Let me know, will you? I'd be delighted to meet you, and to show you some of Louisville if you can get up here (it's 80 miles).
Here's the official Lexington link for you:

We took some friends to Kentucky Horse Park this summer, and it was one of the best days I've ever spent--because they knew of, and were interested in, U.S. horse racing. If you like horses, there's plenty to see other than about thoroughbreds; but if you're indifferent about horses then you might want to skip it.
