Photos: Derby Day at Hotel Covington

Legend has it that John Coppin was able to complete construction on his namesake department store building at Seventh Street & Madison Avenue thanks to a fateful bet at the Latonia Race Course on a horse named Knowledge.

That horse racing connection returned to Coppin's - now the posh Hotel Covington - on Derby Day as the hotel celebrated the first Saturday in May with its recognizable style.
