Check out my Derby post from last year to see the hat I created... And Yes, those are birds in it.
This weekend marks the 137th Kentucky Derby in Louisville (pronounced Loo-uh-vull).
Sadly, I'm not able to go this year. But if we were throwing out bets, I generally go for the horse with the name that sticks out most to me. The Derby race horses this year have some pretty neat names, such as:
Uncle Mo, Midnight Interlude, Mucho Macho Man, Master of Hounds, Stay Thirsty (does he drink Dos Equis?), and Animal Kingdom. My fave I think is 'Pants on Fire' whose colors are pink and orange - I like a man in pink - and his jockey is a girl.
Watch Derby coverage this weekend if you can! You'll see the many crazy hats of the Louisvillians & celebs that attend.
