The Night at the Races is, ” The Most Exciting Two Minutes In Sports”,  and a wonderfully fun filled event that Saint Thomas Parish has held for the last 5 years.  Come join in on the fun.  See the men dressed in their Sunday best while the ladies arrive adorned in the latest spring fashion wearing brilliant hats of all shapes and sizes. Make sure you enter in the events. Prizes will be awarded.

The Kentucky Derby also called “The Run for the Roses” is the first leg of the American Triple Crown and is followed by the Preakness Stakes, then the Belmont Stakes.  Watch the race “Live” in St. Phillips Hall on the big screen HDTV Projector.  Chow down on delicious roast beef and pulled pork sandwiches, and quench your thrust on some ice cold beer from the tap.  If you want anything stronger you’re welcome to bring your own.
