Shelby resident Vicki Tomlinson has been around horses all her life. This week, she’s helping their owners deal with the Derby.

Vicki Tomlinson always knew she'd be around horses.

"From the time I got my first horse at eight-years-old, I knew I'd always be around them," she said.

What she didn't know is that she eventually would be taking care of their owners in the Horseman's Service Center at Churchill Downs.

For the seventh year in a row, Tomlinson, a Shelby County resident, is serving as the concierge for owners and trainers when they descend on Louisville each spring and fall.
