Collegiate Hosts 57th Kindergarten Derby

Louisville Collegiate School hosted the 57th running of its Kindergarten Derby on May 3. Families, friends and community members gathered to watch as the school’s five- and six-year-old “jockeys” competed with their self-decorated hobby horses, clad in matching silks, of course.

Kids bearing the name of actual Derby contenders raced around a makeshift track in hopes of winning the blanket of roses created by their fellow students.

Ayden Goodwin, riding on Justify, was this year’s winner followed by Thomas Paramore on Good Magic and Marin Rooprai, who showed on Mendelssohn. VT

Louisville Collegiate School is a JK-12, co-ed independent day school located in the Highlands of Louisville. For more information, visit louisvillecollegiate.org.
