You want to stay, stay... (34.13)

Bobby: Your granddaddy made a fortune in bourbon. Did he fold up shop when they passed the Volstead Act? How the fuck do you think you got to where you are today? You think you got a suite in Churchill Downs because of your winning goddamn personality? If you want to stay, stay. You want to pull, then tell me in the morning, but either way, get off my dick.

The National Prohibition Act, known informally as the Volstead Act, was enacted to carry out the intent of the 18th Amendment (ratified January 1919), which established prohibition in the United States. The Anti-Saloon League's Wayne Wheeler conceived and drafted the bill, which was named for Andrew Volstead, Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, who managed the legislation.

Churchill Downs, located on Central Avenue in south Louisville, Kentucky, United States, is a Thoroughbred racetrack most famous for annually hosting the Kentucky Derby.

With the infield open for the Kentucky Derby, the capacity of Churchill Downs is roughly 170,000.
