Hello from America!!! Woohoo...yes I am on holiday for a week!
First stop is Louisville Kentucky for the Breeders Cup event – the horse racing event that happens once a year and they stage it at different states every year. This year is it in Kentucky, land of southern fried chicken! Unfortunately I didn’t see much of Kentucky at all as it was very much flying in from NY to attend the event and flying back to NY asap for the shopping. Nothing is close by where we stayed (typical sprawling city where you need a car to get anywhere) so I only saw the University of Louisville stadium from outside (huge) and couple of drive-in diners ($1 dollar burger sounds tempting!)
It was a cold cold day - don't be deceived by the sunglasses! Yes the sun is shinning but the cold is biting.....8 hours outdoor sitting on a metal bench, feels like sitting in a fridge. And they are still selling cold beer! Mad but business is still brisk!
Some of Scott wins for the day. A tradition his dad and uncle has which is to take a picture of their winning horse (from the program) to celebrate. By the last picture, he and his uncle is looking blue (from the cold)!
Proof that we were out for that long - even the sun has gone down!
That's it from Kentucky!
Woohoo...New York Baby....Sing it!
