I am a HUGE fan of horse racing; truth be told, going to the Kentucky Derby is on my bucket list. So since tomorrow is Derby Day, here are some fun facts about the event………….

*The Kentucky Derby is also known as: The Run For The Roses.

*The race is 1.25 miles.

*The Kentucky Derby started in 1875.

*The official drink of the Kentucky Derby is the MINT JULEP.

*The traditional meal of the Kentucky Derby is called: BURGOO, which is a thick, meaty stew.

*Millionaire’s Row is the premium seating area that houses all of the rich and famous Derby guests. ( I guess that’s where I’ll find my Clooney).

*Derby Hat Parade: this takes place inside of Churchill Downs and refers to the sea of hats worn on that day.

Happy Weekend!
