Talk Derby to Me

Think back... where were you this time last year? Well I was wearing a sundress with a large and obnoxious hat, walking around Churchill Downs at the Kentucky Derby. (Shout-out to Martha, Walton, Joni & Holly!)
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.

  1. Nice post! I have always wanted to go the Derby, but had to settle for the Derby Day held at Santa Anita in California. I always love seeing the amazing hats people wear at Churchill Downs.
