Long Days’ Journey to Post Time

Horse-racing aficionados know the Kentucky Derby as “the most exciting two minutes in sports,” but students from Penn College’s School of Business & Hospitality – who have been making the pilgrimage to Churchill Downs for a quarter-century – know firsthand the rigorous and rewarding schedule leading up to those 120 seconds. Go behind-the-scenes with the college’s enterprising entourage as they travel, mince, stand, peel, stay awake and prep for hours … and savor every moment of the exhausting experience. (A YouTube video captures more of the week’s action.)
