Kentucky Derby Party

Posted May 7

Hey Y'all....Many thanks to all who came out for our first Derby party, celebrating the 143rd run for the roses. Everyone had a chance to sample some Derby city favorites from our food buffet, including our version of the Mint Julep! Some then competed in the Run for the Rose' relay race for a personal size Bourbon Barrel Cake all the way from the Bluegrass State. Just prior to post time, several took a chance with a "luck of the draw" of Derby horse contenders in hopes of receiving the winning horse, and a generous cash pot we all contributed towards. Of course our time at the track wouldn't be complete without singing along to "My Old Kentucky Home" just before the horses line up at the gate. Congratulations to "Always Dreaming" ridden by jockey John Velazquez, who put on a great race in the fastest 2 minutes in sports at Church Hill Downs, in Louisville, Kentucky....my very own Home Sweet Home!!!
