I have never been to the Kentucky Derby but growing up my father use to take me to the tracks quite often (that’s what he called it). I recall picking the horses I thought would win the race with him and sometimes joining the winner’s circle to take home a sum of $10 tops. If a horse had a “cool” name or my favorite number I would tell my Daddie to bet on it. At the race tracks we could laugh together, get some fresh air and watch the fastest horses compete.
Looking back I miss those days and in short hope one day I can attend the Kentucky Derby with my Daddie and rock a BIG hat!
