A breakfast no longer, governor's Derby event draws smaller crowd

The free Derby breakfast that Gov. A.B. "Happy" Chandler started as a private get-together for a few friends in the 1930s eventually turned into a public spectacle that for years attracted about 15,000 guests for a free country ham breakfast near the Capitol. Under Beshear, the event has become more of a street fair in downtown Frankfort; a roast pork sandwich Saturday cost $6.
