It’s that time of year again… almost. Derby time. The 2013 Kentucky Derby is May 4th & never fails to disappoint. This year I’m getting a bit earlier start on checking out the contenders for the derby & am reading up on their stats. You can view all of the horses here, now I’m not saying that I’m going to bet on the Kentucky Derby but who knows I might.
The derby is an iconic event even if you are not a horse person, you can’t help but watch. Plus it’s not just about the race, it’s about the parties, food, fashion & lifestyle. Everyone is an equestrian enthusiast for a day & I like it. Last year I inspired you with a Kentucky Derby Entertaining & food… it’s an absolute must to sip on a mint julep while watching the race.
As a non-horse person some of the names of the contenders may be a bit funny but one of my favorite things is reading the names: Texas Bling & Fear The Kitten might be my favorites. Although I’m not going to reveal who I might be betting on yet, after all I don’t want you to steal my horse ; ) I’m sure ESPN will be blowing up with anticipation when we get closer. For now – we are at 38 days.
