Today we got ready for the Kentucky Oaks I wore a pink dress in honor of breast cancer survivors and a fascinator which was hand-painted ostrich feathers. After the Oaks race, we had an after-party where we saw Martina McBride perform a bunch of her hit songs.
May 4, 2019 – DERBY DAY!!!!!
Today was very exciting! Going to the Kentucky Derby was on our bucket list and we are lucky enough to be able to check it off.
After the Derby, our friends Donna & Rodney hired a shuttle to take us all back to the hotel. This is a video of our Irish friends having some fun singing.
We were on the plane with Bob Baffert – Legendary Horse Trainer. I asked him to sign our Trophy Room tickets.
