The most fashionable race of the year...

The 140th Kentucky Derby winner was California Chrome.  I'm so happy for him, his owner, and his rider....but he was not my pick :-(  

He was slated to win and I thought that must be too easy.  I picked Vicars in Trouble and bestie here had Candy Boy for the win... in two minutes it was all over and we were not victorious.  We were however, jolly in our bourbon state with a belly full of slow smoked pork and pasta salad.  Katie also made a delicious dip full of veggies perfect for snacking.
 We celebrated the day in striped maxi dresses and hats with mint juleps and delicious Kentucky bourbon.  Oh and those cups...they were favors at Katie's engagement Derby party a few years ago.  Afterwards we went to a local brewery to continue the fun and we hung out late into the night.  I love celebrating the Derby every year.  It's so unlike the other sports we watch throughout the year and it makes for great people watching!
Onward to the Preakness!  Now we know the horse to watch...
