The Kentucky Oaks and Kentucky Derby

It was my first time at The Kentucky Oaks and Kentucky Derby.  I realized Jack Daniels is made in Tennessee and Woodford Reserve is made in Kentucky.  I learned this event is an all you can eat and drink event.  I learned that getting my seat under an overhang is fortunate on a rainy day.


Friday is the Race Day for the Mares.  You dress in Pink to honor Breast Cancer Awareness.  There is a Kentucky Oaks Breast Cancer Survivors Parade.  There is a group that donates to a Breast Cancer Cause, this year, the money will go toward a breast cancer organization called Twisted Pink.


I nailed the Pink Hat.


The Churchill Downs Museum should not be missed.  It has a great movie included.  If you want the event poster, they have it here.



I dressed roses because my client does not like black.  I would have dressed in Black and White.  Submission shows up in many ways.  He was very happy, and his happiness is important.

I had an amazing time at Churchill Downs.  I was blessed to spend a few more days after walking around Louisville.  I also learned that if you want to go to the Distilleries, you need to add your extra days before the big event, as the town pretty much shuts down.  Still, I toured the Louisville Slugger factory, ate fantastic, and walked all around Old Louisville on a walk about tour.  I highly recommend this.
