Comment: Kroger is a grocery store. For a while now they have been responsible for making the blanket of roses which is placed on the winning horse of the Kentucky Derby. So, they have a ton of stuff related to the Derby and the preceding Festival. This is a model of the Belle of Louisville, a steamboat which participates in a race with another steamboat (representing Indiana). I have no explanation for why they put it on top of a display of Oreos. I would have put seek and YURAsama on the blanket of roses, but considering all the security, I was afraid to even ask!
