It’s Derby week and it’s hard to focus on work when the weather is perfect and the horses are running. We are very fortunate to have over 1500 customers in Louisville, Lexington and surrounding areas. Of those customers, I wonder how many are directly (or a little indirectly) connected to the derby. Here’s a quick list of some of the customers I know talk Derby this time of year but our challenge to you is to let us know if your company is connected to Derby and how. We’d love to hear from you.
Without taxing our brains too much we can immediately list all of our customers in the Equine industry from Wickliffe Veterinary Hospital to Gainesway Farm, Magdalena Farms, Claiborne Farms, Darley Stud Management and the Thoroughbred Center.
If we use our imagination and stretch the derby connections a bit, we can count Liquor Barns across the region. You know they are busy this week as are Creation Gardens, Bluefin Seafood and Centerplate. ESPN Radio is on the backside all week and Z Salon is no doubt a popular stop before heading out to the track. Malone’s and Sal’s and all the BHG restaurants will be busy before and after the races.
Here’s the challenge to our customers, friends and prospects out there: Let us know how your company ‘Talks Derby’. Are you directly involved with an event this week? We’d love to hear from you. Like, share and add your story.
