Our Hometown Horse Wins Kentucky Derby

Churchill Downs

Yesterday I decided to post something about the Kentucky Derby, The Running of the Roses, but something related to the blog, so I chose a recipe. Actually my Father and Mother run a horse farm, and along with them, I have been all over the USA to different races including, Belmont Stakes in New York State, Santa Anita Breeder's Cup in California and Calder Stakes in Florida. Actually some of the most beautiful gardens I have every seen have been at theses Racing Tracks, especially Santa Anita.

The one place I had not traveled to was Churchill Downs, and yesterday a hometown horse form here, won the Kentucky Derby there. I know it's not related to my blog, but around here, everyone is very excited, especially my parents. A New Mexico horse had never won; It's a first!

There's even a 2009 Kentucky Derby Barbie, and her dress is covered with roses.

Congrats to Mine That Bird, 2009 Kentucky Derby Winner from the humble State of New Mexico.

Those roses are beautiful aren't they...thanks for letting me share.

Congratulations on Mine That Bird. I think we all like the "underdog" (or should that be underhorse?) to win and what a win that horse did! It was nice to see. Congratulations! I'll have to see where to buy the Barbie -- my friend who hosts the party would LOVE it!
