Thumbs up May 1st - Derby Day today!

Today, [always the 1st Saturday in May] is Derby Day! It's been raining all
morning, here and in Louisville too - Churchill Downs. That means a sloppy
track, especially if it continues raining all day as it's supposed to.
There's even a possibility of heavy storms throughout the day. Not good
for the horses running nor their jockeys as mud flies into their faces.
And not too many horses are "good mudders."

Anyone wanting to watch the Ky. Derby, it will be on NBC at 6:20 pm EDT,
with preliminary doings at the track probably starting by 5:30, possibly even
by 5 pm. A good time to kick back with a smoothie or highball [my preference].

The ladies are going to get the lovely hats wet.

...and they're off

...and they're coming down the stretch

...and it's, it's, it's

Super Saver

Oh well. I only lost 16 little boxes of raisins. I'll win them back with the race that begins with "Gentlemen Start Your Engines".

Cool Super Saver! 136th Ky Derby!

Sure was! What about that man who put $100,000 on Super Saver to WIN?
He walked away with over $800,000! WOW!

Another good afternoon to make a drinkie-poo and kick back to watch and see! No rain this time!
