We were treated again to the suite that Michael's grandfather has. Mimi and Poppop have been coming to watch races at the track for 40 years!

Once the horses are positioned into the starting gate, the race starts immediately! It all happens so fast.

Today we went to Churchill Downs for Kentucky Oaks, which are the horse races on the day before Derby day. It was SUCH a gorgeous day. We got really lucky, since the forecast called for thunderstorms. Tonight, Derby Eve parties! Photos from that in the next post.
