*Cue the trumpets.....*
The Kentucky Derby kicks off tonight - official races are tomorrow!!!!
Some of you may not be aware of my obsession with the Kentucky Derby. If you ask my husband, Ryan -- you would hear roars of laughter from him. For he thinks this is just hilarious and odd.
Why? Because I'm so not a sports fan. And beyond that - I really, really don't like animals. So why would I enjoy a "sporting event" involving animals?
But I have made Ryan promise me that if we're every disgustingly rich, and just can't think of what to do with "allll" of our money (this won't ever happen...but I can dream!) -- we must take a trip to Louisville, attend the Derby.
Now, we could settle for the infield and just enjoy the atmosphere. But I would prefer to be escorted to "Millionaires Row" where the real action occurs.
I have spent time selecting my outfit and hat. The hat being the most important, of course.
Tomorrow, I plan on shaking up my first Mint Juleps. And I will be listening for "Lookin' At Lucky" to win. Why I chose this horse? ..... It's a little of my "residential pride". He was trained in Tucson, and his jockey also used to train in Tucson (Garret Gomez). "Lookin' AT Lucky" is chose to win, and his Gomez came in 2nd in the 2009 race with the hourse "Pioneerofthe Nile"!
Too bad it's not like this big flowery red one.........*sigh* ;)
