Although the weather in Denver was partly sunny, the morning hours at Churchill Downs were soaking wet as heavy rains pelted the famed racetrack on derby day, causing some doubts as to whether or not the 136th run for the roses would take place. But the rains certainly didn’t dampen the spirits of those attending Jockeys, Juleps & Jazz, the 3rd annual fundraiser for MyLifeLine.org at the Club Level of Invesco Field at Mile High.
