Meet Bryan Brinkmeyer – Chicago, IL
Growing up I spent a lot of days in the Blue Grass State. Although I was born and raised north of the mighty Ohio River in Southwest Indiana, I was still next door to thoroughbred racing. Ellis Park, Henderson, KY is where my Dad introduced me to the Sport of Kings and the almighty racing form.
The first Saturday in May was always a celebrated family event and as my two brothers and I got older the battle for picking the winner began to heat up. In 2000, I made my inaugural Kentucky Derby appearance. Since then I’ve made it an annaual tradition because there’s no other city or weekend in the racing world like Louisville, KY on Derby Day.
Although the story of a Kentucky Derby winner is legendary, following a champions trail is what The Kentucky Derby Post is all about. The coverage begins when the 2-yr-old preps commence but it doesn’t quit racing until all results are official, the field is set, the picks are in and the roses are worn. But that’s not all because the road doesn’t stop on the First Saturday in May. The elusive quest for the next Triple Crown has reached 34 years so we invite our readers to remain in the saddle through all three legs as we await the next Champion of Champions. Cheers.
