Derby City’s first-ever Hot Brown Week is happening now through Sun., Oct. 30, and the event celebrating the 502’s culinary icon has the exact spokesperson to match.

Rather, spokeshorse. Six-year-old racing champion, Somelikeithotbrown of locally-based Skychai Racing, was tapped to represent the inaugural event, in which restaurants, including Cask Southern Kitchen and The Uptown Cafe, will be offering $10+ hot browns across the city all week.

Currently residing at Churchill Downs, Somelikeithotbrown has achieved 10 first-place finishes with career earnings of $1.6 million. He’s also the son of 2008 Kentucky Derby winner Big Brown.
