Where else can you go and wear a fabulous HAT??!!
Even though I've never been to the actual Kentucky Derby, I have been to the next best thing. We have good friends from Kentucky and every year, we go to their UK Alumni Derby party at the Sam Houston Racetrack here in Houston. We can watch live races, place bets, drink mint juleps and of course enter the hat contest!
The first time I went, I remember I placed one bet! I bet on Animal Kingdom and I won! I don't know anything about betting on horses and I was going solely on name alone. I like Disney World's Animal Kingdom so why not! Well it paid off for me!
This year, I picked the winner again . . . Always Dreaming and that I do!
