Has anyone downloaded the Kentucky Derby course? I was thinking of putting it on a flash drive and bringing it to Staples to put it on quality paper and then laminating it.
Any thoughts?

I find it hugely uninteresting, but then I guess if you are an American that may help.

No need to be rude. My post was not worthless at all: you asked for opinions and I gave mine. If you only wanted opinions that agreed with your's (whatever that is) then say so, and I would not waste my time trying to help you.

The Kentucky Derby means nothing over here: whilst I can see the attraction if you know the course and have some 'history' with the race, as a course for this game, it remains uninteresting.

I downloaded but ended up ordering from Andrew at Print & Play games. It was reasonably priced and of good quality. Have greatly enjoyed the track and typically run the third and deciding race at the Derby. May be no big deal to the Euros, but, after all, it is the biggest horse race in the USA.thumbsup

As a native Kentuckian, I should point out that the course is actually not for the Kentucky Derby! The Derby is run on an oval track very similar to that included in the base game. The Course Collection III track is for Turfway Park (EDIT: actually, Kentucky Downs ), another track in Kentucky, which is historically much less interesting but has a unique pear-shaped track, hence its choice for inclusion in the game. Most American racetracks are pretty dull in comparison to the more exotic shapes in Europe, but Kentucky Downs is one of the few exceptions.

My bad, apologies as I took it the wrong way.
Sorry
