Today we went to Churchill Downs and the Louisville Slugger Museum. At Churchill Downs we saw the race track and stadium that holds the Kentucky Derby. We watched the jockeys ride and practice with their horses. Inside the museum we did a horse racing simulator against each other, and we placed bets on who will win (fake), we explored the exhibits and the displays at the museum, and we watched a short movie about the Kentucky Derby and it's jockeys, trainers, and horses. After Churchill Down we ate lunch at Troll Pub. After lunch we went to the Slugger Museum and got the factory tour and saw and learned how to make multiple types of baseball bats with machines like CNC and the lathe. We all got free tiny baseball bats. In the exhibits we played baseball simulator and went to the batting cage to hit real baseballs. After Slugger Museum we had dinner at Olive Garden.
