Today's post is an ode to the 138th Kentucky Derby held on May5th at Churchill Downs.
Let me tell you, gambling and betting is not my cup of tea! All I am interested in is the Derby fashion. The ornate hats and head wears have always fascinated me, but I never really thought that I'd be hooked to the game so bad!
When I turned on the TV on Saturday, all I had in mind, was the amazing dresses and the astounding hats.
The next thing that caught my eyes was the stars of the race, the horses themselves.
Those beasts are indeed some beauties and had some very amusing names like Daddy Long Legs, Went The Day Well, Daddy Nose Best, Done Talking and of course, last but not the least, I'll Have Another One!
I can't believe the magnitude of the grand celebration, the money involved and the amount of preparation they had for a race which lasted only a couple minutes.
By the time they were showing the history of the game and the preparation involved I was totally hooked to it.
The climax was the unexpected surge and win by I'll Have Another One, from the 19th position (19 out of a total of 20 horses) at the final stretch beating the more popular speed star, Bodemeister!
I've never seen a shorter, more exciting race than this before and surely I'm ready to have another one of it!
One day, I dream of attending the Kentucky Derby, being a lady in a fancy dress and an even more flamboyant hat, cheering for the likes of I'll Have Another One!
