Today was the Kentucky Derby, the first of the Triple Crown Races. It's my favorite of the 3 races because it has the most character, I think. It's my favorite because... 1) I've actually visited Churchill Downs, 2) it's in the beautiful blue-grass farmlands of Kentucky, 3) I love the fashion at the Kentucky Derby...seeing everyone dressed up in sophisticated attire and their hats (What kind of fashion is it anyway? English? Southern plantation?), 4) they have the best song, and 5) I've had the Kentucky Derby Pie at Rachels in Grove City and it is really yummy! (I'll have to try that recipe sometime.) Someday, I'd like to go see the Kentucky Derby in person. I'll never be an owner or a jockey of one of those horses. But, I thought it would be fun if anyone is creative enough and wants to post what they would name their horse if they could have one to run in the race.
