Those of you may not be familiar with the fact that Jacob and I just moved to Louisville a few months ago. Therefore, this is our first Derby here in KY and let me tell you I have learned a few things.
People here call it Derby......not THE Derby or The Kentucky Derby......just Derby. Same with Oaks. Today is the 137th Derby.
Churchill Downs is beautiful and always perfectly manicured
The Derby is called the Running of the Roses and is for the male and female horses and The Oaks is the running of the Lilies because it's just the fillies and is the day before Derby Day. This picture is from the Derby because the horse is decorated in roses
Most people are aware Derby is all about the hats for the ladies
As I'm 8 months pregnant we aren't really taking part in any Derby activities this year but perhaps next year we will get in on the action.
Have a great day!
