Kentucky or Bust!

This weekend Craig and I went to the Blue Grass Stakes horse race at Keeneland race track in Kentucky. We spent Friday night at my aunt's house in London, KY and then traveled up to Lexington the next day for the races.

Craig and I on our drive up to Kentucky... what an awesome view!
My cousin Chuck gave Craig and I a tour of the city and of the UK campus on our way to the race track. There were 10 races for the day with the Blue Grass Stakes being the 9th. Some of the horses that ran in the Stakes will be running in the Derby this May.

We had seats in the Equestrian Room, which was wonderful since the temperature was in the 50's for the day.

Unfortunately... the horses were faster than my camera!

We had a blast and we even left with more money than we went with... which is more than can be said for most of the others who were there!
