    Thinking about doing a weekend for the derby. Probably get there Thursday night and leave Sunday. Is it worth the trip?

    My friends go every year. It's fine if you don't care about the race and just want to hang out with people and drink.

    I prefer going to Breeders Cup instead.

    Nope.

    Depends on where you plan to sit. The infield tends to have more of a party atmosphere(especially during The Oaks the day prior). The primo tickets tend to lead you in a bit of a stuffier atmosphere...lots of old white people. Though I'm only speaking about what I've heard.

    The Oaks (day before) is actually better. The Derby is all about rich people wanting to be seen. Churchill Downs is in the slums of Louisville and not very safe at all. Its fun to experience it once, but it is very underwhelming.
