Letters from a Hill Farm
Wasn't that a great race?!
Lovely photograph, says it all. I love racing, my children don't get it at all!!Carole
The jockey seemed so sweet. And such a great horse. I was pleased that the trainer finally had a Derby winner.
Nan, this is totally off topic so you don't have to even post it, but I searched your entire blog to find your email address so I could thank you for all the good books I have read courtesy of you but to no avail. I had some titles to share also.I cannot see it anywhere. It especially bothered me when you said that you had received e-mail when the comments were closed because I couldn't find your e-mail address. Could you mention where it is on your blog. Thanks!Kinga
Thank you for letting me know. I removed it when I left the blog for a while, and never put it back. Those who emailed me must have already had the address. Anyhow, I just put it back. Click about me, under the blog pic, and then view my complete profile, and it's on the left. Sorry, and again, thanks!
That is a great photo of the winner-blurring out the background and capturing all mud, guts, and glory.I admire the talent of photographers.
I found it on the KD facebook page. Lots more have been added since I saw it. It was a messy track. Amazing how they run in such mud.
I missed the Derby but I was at a crazy birthday party for two friends in a great warehouse space with a pinata of Yoda (May the Fourth Be With You party), fantastic Mexican food, and a burlesque troupe from New Orleans who performed (tasteful, nothing you don't see on the beaches of Europe)! One of the more unique parties I've ever attended! I actually did at one point go see if they had the Derby playing on their large screen TV, but they did not.
I think I'd rather watch horse racing. :<)))
Yes! Great picture! Beautiful horse, even covered in mud!
I don't know how they do it in that mud. The jockeys have many goggles that they lift up one by one as the race goes on.
Great picture, Nan. Whenever I see horses running in mud I always think they're going to slip. I can't see how they don't. I'm always on pins and needles. Still, it was a great race. I don't have cable anymore, but I usually get to watch the race later on youtube. I wonder if Orb will go on to win the Triple Crown. Probably not. It seems just about impossible to do nowadays.
We got rid of our dish, and happily could watch the live streaming over our Apple TV.
We enjoyed the race as well :) have a great week Nan.
It is so much fun.
Dear Nan,I MUST tell you that I LOVE your header photo of those fantastic daffodils. Are they blooming in your yard? That bright color must be a TONIC for you!
Thanks, and yes they are mine! You are so right about the tonic. :<)
