We were live from Oaklawn today to preview the Kentucky Derby. Mark Abernathy, the well known local chef, called in from Churchill Downs where he was participating in "A Taste of the Derby". Other well known chef's participated in the event that was a fundraiser for Hunger Relief. Mark raised 1,500 bucks to bring back for the Arkansas Food Bank. He is hanging around for the Oaks and the Derby at Churchill Downs and says that our own Oaklawn can hold it's own in comparison.
From KATV, Justin Lewis joined us to talk about a feature he worked on about the horse Will Take Charge that is running in the Derby. In this segment we also go through a Yahoo top 10 list of the coolest Kentucky Derby Horse names of all time.
