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.
