kentucky derby // equestrian a la mode

an instagram: front row seats to the action!
Over Easter, my parents and I attended the opening day at Keeneland in Lexington, Kentucky. It was my first time at the races, but my mom--a Kentucky gal, born and raised--quickly showed my dad and I the ropes. My betting strategy was a bit off the beaten path... my money went to the horses with the best names :)

After my first $2 win (thanks, Let's Get Married!), I was hooked. The skies were blue and the horses were gorgeous!

I had such a great time at Keeneland that I desperately wish I could attend the Kentucky Derby next weekend. I love the dress-code: a big hat, pretty dress, and minty drink. Someday, I'll get there!
