Louisville, Ky. (WHAS) – Churchill Downs held a different kind of Veteran’s Day celebration Sunday.

5 of the 7 Breeder’s Cup champions with Churchill Downs ties were show off at the races as a way to salute the hometown heroes.

“It was such a strong day, the connections, the owners, the trainers were great to work with us to make this special parade between the races happen and it was a special one of a kind moment that you’ll see beneath the Twin Spires,” Darren Rogers of Churchill Downs said.

The day featured a 10-race program where all United States veterans and active duty military were given as a way of saying thank you.
