Weekend Rewind: Derby Day

I attended my first Run for the Roses this weekend! It was very exciting; I felt like I was embracing my Louisville roots. And I even bet on the winning horse! Unfortunately, I only bet $5 on I’ll Have Another to place, but I cashed in for $45, so it felt pretty great for my first gambling experience – and covered my mint juleps.

In the end though, I have mixed emotions about the Derby. I think next time I’d want to pony up (no pun intended) the extra cash to sit in the grandstand – and it’s quite a bit more. But I want to actually see the horses! I can drink in a field for free here.
