Bills at the Kentucky Derby

EJ Manuel, Eric Wood and Thurman Thomas all stepped out in Louisville, Kentucky and added a little Bills flavor to this weekend’s Kentucky Derby festivities.

Wood played college football at Louisville, a short distance from his hometown of Cincinnati, so he considers the Derby a personal tradition. It was Manuel’s first trip to the event. He and Wood attended the Julep Ball in their Derby-best on Friday night.

Like Wood, though not origionally from the area, Thomas and his wife Patti are regulars at the Derby, and checked in this weekend with a few high profile NFL names including Tom Brady and Vince Wilfork.
