And they're off!

In honor of today's Kentucky Derby, I thought I would share a couple of my photos from our trip a couple of weeks ago to the horse races at "Keeneland" track just outside of Lexington, KY. Keeneland race track is beautiful and rich in history. The grounds, the Grandstand, and the stables are all incredibly beautiful.  You can learn all about the track and races by clicking on their website, here.

General Admission to Keeneland is only $5 for adults and children under 12 get in free.  The crowd varies from the very well dressed elite horse fans to the more casually dressed admirers like my family.

For those looking to catch up on all the top contenders in this year's Kentucky derby you can click on the leader board, here.
