Derby Day, Kenyan Style

Posted by
Pied Crow (Abuja, Nigeria) on 27 April 2009 in Sport & Recreation.

The Kenya Derby in April is the biggest day of racing at Ngong racecourse in Nairobi. It's always a colorful scene there, with the jockeys in their silks, and the green grass of the track, and unlike Churchill Downs on Derby day, plenty of room at the rail to take a picture.
