My first experience with horse racing ever and like sushi I thought, why did I wait so long to try this. The thundering horses, the screaming crowd, I can see how people get addicted, it really was exhilarating. But I'm getting ahead of myself, it all started out tailgating in the parking lot, much like a football game, except instead of crazy team themed costumes, we people watched for their over the top fashions. And it began with us when the hats came out.
Thank god Kate brought that hot apple cider and bourbon, it was more than a little cool out there.
Growing up with friends on farms I had seen more than a few horses in my time, I was still blown away by how tiny these horses were, incredible, no wonder the jockeys have to be so small.
Like I said, people watching was all part of the fun, this dude, wow, this is wrong on so many levels.
Seersucker after Labor Day? I could even give you to the end of the baseball season but come on. Plus no way did it fit, he must have picked it up at the thrift store on the way to the track.

The lady in white? If her clothes weren't worth more than my condo I'd be surprised, she won the over the top fashion statement of the day.
Katy Now won us a bunch of money to show.
We lost it all on Gossip Girl to place.
