Kentucky Derby bans drones, selfie sticks
In a loss for annoying people everywhere, Churchill Downs has banned selfie sticks from the Kentucky Derby and Oaks races.
The triple crown venue will not allow the picture-taking accessories as well as photo drones inside for the 2015 running of the Kentucky Derby, according to The Courier Journal of Louisville.
For the first time ever, fans will also not be permitted re-entry on the day of the race, with track general manager Ryan Jordan telling The Courier-Journal the policy made it too east for counterfeiters to prosper.
"Our previous re-entry policy made it a fairly simple task for ticketed patrons to exit the track and quickly generate copies of their tickets and wristbands for sale outside of our grounds."
