Bath Time at Churchill Downs

May 3, 2012: Even soaking wet, Dullahan is so handsome!

A few mornings before the Kentucky Derby, we had to make a decision as to which barn to head to after all of the Oaks/Derby horses came off the track from their morning works. Since Churchill Downs sets aside a specific time for all of the contenders to go to the track (no other horses are allowed out while the Oaks/Derby horses are working), they all end up┬áback at their barns at the same time. We decided to run to Dale Romans’ barn in order to catch a glimpse of Dullahan getting cooled out, but we had a little extra time to get to Bob Baffert’s barn as well.

Derby week is so much fun!
