Galloping Through the Derby Daze: A Journey with Equestrian Enthusiasts

Noble & Company Realty's North Carolina and South Carolina Realtors, Shayne Hollifield (L) and Amy Curtis (R) bound for the 2024 Kentucky Derby

Derby Daze: A Tale of Equestrian Delight and Real Estate Revelry

As relayed by Realtor Amy Curtis, North Carolina Office 


Imagine a sunny Friday in May, Amy Curtis, North Carolina Realtor, and Shayne Hollifield, Broker-in-Charge of the Noble & Company South Carolina office - adorned with fascinators (yes, please add a word to our vocab and an accessory to our closet!) and brimming with excitement. They are about to embark on a journey to experience the legendary Kentucky Derby. Now, let me assure you, while they may be seasoned real estate professionals, their Derby know-how was as fresh as a breeze in the Carolina countryside.



Their Derby debut? Well, let's just say it was an adventure filled with laughter, surprises, and a few unexpected twists. From missing a race inside that famous spire-lined track known as Churchill Downs, to dancing in the rain like nobody's watching. No matter their rain-drenched hair, dresses, and faces, they embraced every moment with enthusiasm. After all, isn't life (and real estate!) all about savoring the joy of the unexpected?

Inside the flurry of activity and the palpable excitement of the Derby, they found themselves awestruck from the sheer magic of it all. The thundering hooves, the vibrant fashion, the contagious energy—it was a spectacle unlike any other. And in that moment, in the thick of the smiling faces and fluttering fascinators, it’s impossible to not feel a deep connection to the heart and soul of equestrian living. Throughout the day, horses' hooves hammered the dirt, the announcer relayed every race detail like an auctioneer, and the crowd was wild with one long never-ending roar.
