Down the Stretch with Sherlene Shanklin: There will be all types of events during Derby week that the whole family can enjoy but there's one that's funny, creative and it has a bed on wheels with adults dressed in costumes pushing it. If you have never seen the Kentucky Derby Festival's Great Bed Race you are missing a treat.
KDF calls it one of the most light hearted races in the country. The race consist of a team of five people. There's four people that are called pushers and one person steers the bed is the rider. They race around Broadbent Arena pushing their decorated bed in a 600 yard dash to the finish line.
You can see more than 40 teams tonight at 7:00 p.m. with thousands of fans cheering them on. This year's theme is "Where the Wild Things Are". The event is free with a 2014 Pegasus Pin but parking at the Kentucky Expo Center is $8 per vehicle. To see a schedule of events go to KDF.org.
