I already have lots of pictures online from the races for you, but here is a selection of scenes from Derby day that you might not see if you weren't there yourself. Click on the small image to view a larger version.

Carrying the garland of roses and the bouquet for the winner over before the Derby. Unfortunately they never got used since Big Brown was too fractious. Although they didn't get used, the roses were waiting by the winner's circle with an honor guard.
