Have you ever been to a Thoroughbred Horse Race?
What an amazing experience!
|Keeneland - Lexington, Kentucky|
We went to the last race day of the season
at Keeneland in Lexington, Kentucky
with our adventurous travel mates, Dave and Jan
and our dear Kentucky friends, Debi and Larry
Jan and Debi chose their horse.
No. 5 "Shun" a gorgeous 4 year old Bay gelding
based on his beauty,
the sparkle in his eyes and his tiny female jockey,
all perfectly good reasons - right?
With great confidence the
wager was made to win - not just to show or even place!
Much to our surprise No. 5 WON......
Who knew that a $2 bet could be such fun.
I had the good fortune of a few wins myself.
My strategy - pick horse #3 to place
it was fairly successful - what fun!
The winner -
riden by Jockey
Look at those happy smiles!
|Debi showing her love of these beautiful creatures!|
Oh, we had so much fun.
Kentucky is so beautiful and
our hosts were generous and welcoming!
We experienced Creole food, Tally Ho breakfasts,
Bread pudding with bourbon sauce,
Flourless Chocolate Cake, Pumpkin Panna Cotta,
Homemade Spinach Quiche, and much more!!!
(is that too many explanation marks?)
|Jambalaya at Gumbo Ya Ya - so delicious|
|Beautiful Horse Farms!|
|Our table being prepared at Holly Hill Inn - what a treat!|
If you ever get the chance to visit
go for the win!!!
You won't regret it.......
Till next time ......... may your wins be blessings!
