The Kentucky Derby means big bucks for Louisville, but some minority business owners feel they've been put out to pasture.
Owners of fast food restaurants, bars and barber shops in a predominantly black area of downtown Louisville are upset. They say a police blockade keeps them from sharing in the estimated $200 million dollars expected to pour into the city over Derby weekend.
The blockade was put into place after a fatal shooting and rape occurred on Derby weekend in 2005.
The owners asked a judge to ban the blockade, but the judge ruled it will stand for now.
