Off to the Races

In Louisville the last days of the Fall Meet at the races are  Thanksgiving weekend.  So Saturday morning we headed out to Churchill Downs for a fun day with friends and family.  
Papa Joe treated us to a table up in Millionaires Row (even though we aren't) and we felt like big shots.
Even the Baptists go to the track in Kentucky because it is such a part of our culture.

The view from the patio outside our table.
The "Rock and Roll Mothers"
The mane attractions.
Papa Joe trying hard to pick a winner the scientific way.  Unfortunately the girls won more $ just picking funny names and long shots.  There is no justice.
Annie and Rush.  Are they adorable or what?
A beautiful exhibit made of blown glass that recreates the Downs.  
How did the "Rock and Rolls" evolve from babes to Maxine?
Oh, well.  We're still having fun after all of these years!
