Bourbon & Horses
Old timers in the Bluegrass State will tell you the truth.
That Kentucky has been racing horses for at least a hundred and thirty years and making bourbon for a century before that. Which means you ain't gonna beat them on the track, in the rickhouse, or in the Wikipedia history article. So you might as well just place your bet, grab a pour, and toast to two fine American pastimes that have been distilled to perfection in the South.
