As beautiful as yesterday was, today we had rain. And lots of it. The storms started sometime in the night. I woke up around 5:00 and heard the thunder and pouring rain, and it continued well into the morning. The rain did ease up, but didn’t really go completely away.
Today was Derby Day, the day that Louisville shines, and is in the public spotlight around the country. In spite of the rain, it was a good day. We had a Derby Party with Jeff’s family, as well as a few other friends. Calvin Borel did it again, this time in the mud. He has won 3 of the last 4 Derbies, and he does it the same way every time. He gets on that inside rail and finishes strong, passing everybody on the inside.
There were prizes for the people who came in 1st, 2nd, 3rd and last. We went home empty handed. All four of our horses finished in the middle.
Sorry I can’t put the video on here of the race. I can’t find it on youtube, at least not yet, however, if you click on this link –>LINK<-- you should be able to watch the race.
We’ll catch you on May 15 for the Preakness (the 2nd leg of the Triple Crown of horse racing), and coincidentally, is also Gabi’s birthday.
