Oh MAY – and that means racing! I think this is my very favorite month of the year. It’s a racers Valhalla and it is also the month my beautiful little brother was born as well as my adorable Daughter.
May starts with the Derby – the Kentucky Derby to be exact if you are not familiar with it. Big hats, Mint Juleps and the finest breed of racing horses on the planet competing for the gold trophy that is 22 inches tall, has a 14-karat gold horse and rider atop it and horseshoe-shaped wreath handles and stands on a jade base, along with this comes a Garland of Roses. The twin spires on the homestretch and the beautiful architecture are a feast for the eye in what is know as “The greatest two minutes in sports”. I have never owned a race horse or competed at the Derby, but I have this funny feeling that someday I will – and my guess is one of my siblings will be along side championing the effort!
May finsihes with the Indy 500 – or – “The greatest spectacle in racing” and trust me… it is.
