Hats off to the Kentucky Derby

From Kiley Blackman
Date 2 May 2012

Tuckahoe, N.Y.: Hats off to the Kentucky Derby” (Letter to the Editor,, May 2) says “it’s all about the wild hats and beautiful people.” It should be about the hats only; have a lovely fashion show, mingle with the swells, have a mint julep — and leave the animals alone.

This type of event, riddled with scandal, drugging and whipping, is a cruel, sad relic of the past and should remain there.
