Here’s a review of the questions:
- What North Thoroughbred, considered one of the greatest racehorses of all time, never took part in The Kentucky Derby?
- What outdated verbiage is still included in the oath of office for Kentucky governors?
- What pioneering American film director was born in Oldham County but moved to Louisville at the age of 14?
And here are the answers!
- Man o’ War—Although he was foaled in Lexington, his hooves never touched racing dirt at Churchill Downs. Reportedly, his owner, Samuel Riddle, believes that the weather conditions for May in Kentucky made it too much of a task for a horse running 1 ¼ miles.
- Even though the last known duel in Kentucky was in the 1860s, newly elected governors must swear an oath that they have never fought a duel with deadly weapons.
- D.W. Griffith, known for the 1915 film Birth of a Nation, moved with his family to Louisville to operate a boarding house. The building is still standing at 805 East Market Street.
