Derby preparations

The case of mint julep glasses arrived from Louisville today marking the official time to begin cleaning the house for our Kentucky Derby Party on Saturday.  The glasses are different every year.  Some years the design has been downright ugly, others – like this year’s – are kinda cool.  Some folks come see us every year just so they can continue their souvenir collection.  I see them all over town when I visit freind’s homes… many times they have them lined up on shelves like trophies.

Looks like the favorite this year will be a fine Kentucky colt… name of  Tapit.  I watched him come from dead last to win the Wood Memorial back on April 10.  A very impressive animal. 

My favorite, you ask?  Who else?

Tricky Derby knowledge question: How many horses have won the Kentucky Derby?
