Wednesday, May 1, 2013 kentucky derby

This Saturday is the Kentucky Derby!  I have had a serious fascination with horse racing ever since I read this entire book series when I was a child.  Like most kids, I really wanted to own a horse, but of course my parents knew how completely impractical it was.  So, I obsessed through literature!

Read: National Velvet...not traditional horse racing, but a children's classic and is currently on my must-read list.
Visit: Louisville, KY.  Home of Churchill Downs and the Kentucky Derby.  I have only visited once during high school, but it was amazing to see the grounds of the most famous horse race (plus tons of other amazing things to do).
Wear: An over the top hat.   Of course.  Pair with a great sundress and a mint julep.
Watch: Seabiscuit.  The movie adaptation of Laura Hillenbrand's the journey of a triple crown winner and his jockey.
