DERBY DAY WITHOUT THE DERBY
Yesterday was the first time maybe in my life that I didn't watch the derby. I had no interest at all. Remember two years ago when Big Brown won and the second place horse Eight Belles (pictured ) broke her ankles and had to be put down? That really troubled me and has kinda soured me on horse racing as a whole. Sure Keeneland is fun, and it's always a good time but for me, everything changed on that day. I dunno maybe I'm sad because it's been raining so hard that I think I'm going to have to build an ark soon. Maybe it's because we had an open house yesterday and nobody came. (Every time I say that out loud, I start singing Eleanor Rigby) Regardless, it's how I feel today and it's my blog and like JMiIl said, I'm allowed to vent on here. Anyway, remember Eight Belles.
