Horse Racing – 1987 – Kentucky Derby Special – Promenade Of Field To Starting Gate – With Jim McKay

The is just something about the elegance and eloquence of ABC’s Jim McKay’s voice that lends itself to such a simple moment…..as when the entire field of 113th running of the Kentucky Derby is in single file promenading in front of the Churchill Downs grandstand…..while McKay introduces each horse, their track record and their odds at race time….that makes this video well worth watching. 

When it comes to sportscasters here at ImaSportsphile….where we have literally thousands of events and moments when “the men behind the mike” take sports fans on a “magical mystery tour” of prose during such high intensity events as the moments just before the “greatest two minutes in sports” kicks off as the starting gates open for the Derby.
