Happy 142nd Kentucky Derby

IMG_1185It was a beautiful Derby Day in central Kentucky Saturday, aside from that nasty downpour around 5PM that sent a slew of $500 hats blowing across the grandstand at Churchill Downs.

But that failed to dampen the party in the infield or otherwise throughout the facility. Simply sample another Mint Julep and all will be made well.

The overall pre-race favorite took home the garland of roses and the Kentucky Derby trophy. Congrats to Nyquist, trainer Doug O’Neill and owner J. Paul Reddam.

There will be a lot of money and enthusiasm pouring into the streets of Louisville tonight. Have a great time everyone, be safe and party till the sun comes up.
