Derby Day

North Idaho is a long way from Kentucky's Churchill Downs, although for many years the Rathdrum Prairie was one of the largest producers of Kentucky Bluegrass seed. On the first Saturday in May the run for the roses is the big ticket at the Greyhound Park Events Center in Post Falls. Formerly a greyhound racing venue, in recent years it's become the site of the annual Julyamsh Pow Wow and a favorite off-track paramutual wagering location. So if you want to put a couple of bucks on one of the twenty contenders in the first jewel of horseracing's Triple Crown, the Greyhound Park is right off of I-90 at the Pleasantview Exit.
