From his perch with a panoramic view of the world's most famous racetrack, the new voice of Churchill Downs will sit out one of the most anticipated moments of the tradition-soaked Kentucky Derby. Larry Collmus will try to tune out ''My Old Kentucky Home'' while the crowd of 160,000-plus sings along and the thoroughbreds take to the Churchill Downs track. ''So I'll introduce 'My Old Kentucky Home,' but I won't listen to it.'' Collmus, 47, has called the past three Derbys for millions of people watching on NBC Sports, but this will be the first time his voice will be heard by the thousands at the track for the 140th Kentucky Derby on May 3. The previous track announcer stepped aside last year.
