derby fun

c and i celebrated the 136th kentucky derby at the santa anita park. we were invited to a private event hosted by maker's mark and it was so fun! while the track wasn't having any races on site, it was still fun to watch the races on television while drinking a perfect mint julep and people-watching [there were some great outfits and hat combos so i'm already thinking about next year's attire - i had very short notice this year so there was no time to get an outfit together].

anyway, it's true what they say...the race is the most exciting 2 minutes in sports! i had my bets on jackson bend and stately victor, but was sad to see that neither of them placed. that's the last time i trust my instincts! ha! c bet on paddy o'prado to win and it was so neat to see him come up the side and take 3rd place in the last stretch of the race.

here are some pics from the day:


i can't wait for next year!!

How fun! Looks like it was a blast! I love Santa Anita!! This year I watched the game from the Del Mar Racetrack. I wish Derby Day was more than just once a year!

The photos from the party turned our great. I love the last one of you and C. Those mint juleps also look really good. I’ve never had one before.
