Dan Fogelberg's "Run for the Roses" brings tears to eyes [Kentucky Derby]

Print

As we get through Thursday of Derby Week (the last day of the week for most in the Louisville are), It's high time to join in the Dance!

What "One Shining Moment" is to the NCAA Tournament, Dan Fogelberg's "Run for the Roses" is to the Kentucky Derby.  This writer nearly cries each time he hears it, which (unfortunately) is less and less each year.

Just for the record, the first time it was heard this year was on the drive through Kentucky's horse country after Stately Victor pulled off the upset in the Blue Grass Stakes at Keeneland. (Thank God for Slacker Radio on the BlackBerry and the auxiliary input on the car stereo.)

Enjoy!
