LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Patients and parents at Kosair Children's Hospital got a break from reality on Friday and spent some time with jockeys from Churchill Downs.

More than a dozen jockeys visited with patients and their families at Kosair Friday morning.

Among the visitors were three-time Kentucky Derby winner Calvin Borel, Corey Lanerie, Shaun Bridgmohan and Shane Sellers.

Lanerie who leads the 2012 spring meet in wins says meeting with the patients is a great way to remind him what's really important in life.

 “We come here, it makes the kids feel really good. It kind of brings back into perspective of, we don't see this every day. You kind of forget about it. It kinda brings you back to reality. ,” Corey Lanerie, spring meet riding leader, said.

This meet and greet with jockeys at Kosair has become an annual tradition at the end of the spring meet.
