On the first Saturday in May, the Diva's headed out at 4:30am to grab their spot along the rails of the backside of the legendary Churchill Downs in Louisville, KY for the 139th running of the Kentucky Derby.
We were able to watch the morning training sessions. Afterwards, we walked around to the stables and watched the ponies get their morning baths. Soon after, the rains started and they never stopped. The rain didn't damped our spirits. We did a little betting (the winnings were give and take), met some great new friends and had a great time!
After the Derby was over, we jetted outta there, headed home and switched gears (and hats!) for the Derby After Party @ Drake's St. Matthews. Even though neither of us had the derby winner and we spent a complete 25 hours celebrating, it was all worth it. We can't wait until next year!
