"My Old Kentucky Home", is a cut from the Heartstrings sampler CD. Rick Wedge on guitar, Kathy Weathers and Jackie Armstrong on mountain dulcimers.

It will soon be time for the Kentucky Derby! Its a great time of year for a horse race and it always brings back memories of my teenage years when I worked for my uncle at the racetrack walking the "hots" as they came off the track. It was a time before mechanical walkers and required a very early rise from bed and having lunch when most people are eating breakfast! Always loved the smell of horse, hay and leather.

My Uncle, Sherman Armstrong, was a jockey in the 1950's and 60's. This picture was taken in the winner circle at Keeneland Racetrack 1952.  The horse was "Sweet Patootie"

This month's FREE TAB is "Camptown Races" written by Stephen Foster 1826 - 1864. Historians believe Foster wrote the song shortly after visiting the Camptown Pennsylvania racetrack. Foster went to school in a town near the track.
