Ok, so most people only know this because of the headline on MSN…and truthfully, I only know it because I saw a headline last weekend about it. But I really am interested in the race. I really would like to follow horse racing more, but it takes time and I have better things to do with my time. Also, I don’t bet on the races, which makes them slightly less interesting since my money isn’t on the line. Oh well, I just don’t like gambling.
I will say that next year I am going to have a Kentucky Derby Party. Everyone can dress up, wear fancy hats and eat some sort of food. So mark it on your calendar, for whatever day in May (I think it’s always the first Saturday?) the Derby falls on next year.
