It was GORGEOUS when we got there on Friday, and we were so wishing the weather would stay that way. Unfortunately, that was not in the cards but the rain stopped at opportune times, like when we were arriving at the track and for the actual Derby race. The sun did not even come close to coming out all day except right when they started bringing the Derby horses out of the paddock. Apparently, God loves the Kentucky Derby. ;)
We bet on races 7-11 and won twice, putting us up a whopping $33! I don't know what made me like Super Saver before the race, but I decided on Thursday that he was one of my horses and bet him across the board. We had several other Derby bets, one of them being a trifecta box with horses 4, 10 and 11. Well, the top three were 4, 2 and 10 so we were SO CLOSE to a $2200 win on our $2 trifecta box. Betting is a lot easier in hindsight. ;) Without further adieu, let's get to the real fun... pictures!
On the way home, we had to go through (and around because roads were closed) Nashville, and here is some of the flooding we saw...
My thoughts and prayers are with all those affected. It's unbelievable what water can do.
