Derby Fever

I’m afraid I’m coming down with a terrible case of Derby Fever. I’ve had a nagging headache due to my search for a hat, and my blood pressure is slightly elevated¬†from watching prep races. I have a front row seat this year, so it’s possible I could break out in hives at any moment due to my allergic reaction to waiting for the first Saturday in May.

As is the case every year, my favorite time at the track is the early morning. Here’s a reminder of how lovely those mornings can be! I’ll be at Churchill Downs all day Thursday, Friday, and Saturday of Derby week. I simply cannot wait!
