Derby Fucking Weekend!

I know you snow types dont get south of the mason-dixon line much but if you can...do Kentucky Derby weekend at least once in your life. We are up to our necks in bourbon, barbeque, steel guitar and gambling. Best weekend of the year! Hunter S Thompson had it rught. Decadent and depraved.
Seriously if you get in your car now you'll make Derby post time!
Yee fucking haw!

Derby is awesome! I live about an hour away. I have to work this weekend so I don't get to go, but I did run the derby half marathon last weekend and we run through Churchill Downs so that is pretty cool.

Have fun, be safe.

Sounds excellent!

Haven't been yet (although planning a Rolex + Derby trip at some point in the future) but I know Rosie Napravnik. Used to ride horses with Rosie and her sister Jasmine when we were kids, but haven't been in contact since.

Rosie is the first female jockey to win the Oaks (last year). Wishing her luck!

Oy....I am just emerging from my bourbon fog. I know my horse came in 3rd. I know it was the coldest wettest Derby I've ever been to. It pissed rain ALL day and didnt break 55 degress. But it was awesome as usual. I ended up a winner by a small amount (like $65)

All I know is its 364 days to Derby 2014 and I cant wait!
