The Running of the Roses

Kentucky Derby Day...and they're off! I spent a wonderful afternoon at one of my oldest, dearest friend's Derby Day party. That's Kay pictured in the photo, wearing her Derby hat and gleefully leading us all in singing "My Old Kentucky Home" before the race. It was a great party full of fabulous food, lots of laughs, mint juleps and very generous betting (ALL of which was donated to the Leukemia Research Foundation).
i never miss the derby..........my horse lost tho!

@Richard - I knew nothing about the horses, but I managed to pick all three! Of course, I bet a little something on about half of them. Ha!

Fun! I was a thoroughbred groom for a few years back in the '80's... none of my "kids" ever made it to the derby, but I still like to follow thr Triple Crown races!
