Kentucky Derby

Any KT members going to the Kentucky Derby next month ? This was a bucket list item for Ms Tejun and I found a fantastic package through a coordinator we've used before for other trips. Got my Seersucker sport jacket and Stetson Fedora from Meyer the Hatter in New Orleans all ready to go

Package came with a bourbon tasting at a horse ranch the night before the derby

Talking Not So Much!!

Sorry, but I'm not into horses or seersucker anything and my taste in Stetsons leans toward the Alan Jackson line.

However, I do hope that you and Mrs. Tejan have a real good time at the derby. Place a bet for me on Roy Rogers and Trigger!! ENJOY!!!

I was at every derby from 1997 to 2010. It's a bucket list event for sure. Take the time to walk through the infield, it's like woodstock.

Derby Day is great but after going to a couple Oak's Day (Friday) is my favorite Day at Churchill Downs.

Don't be afraid to dress up, people seriously bring it for the Derby.

You had me a "bourbon tasting" ... I'm in...

I think I'll just watch the race on TV ... during my own "bourbon tasting" ...I'll have to gather up a few examples for an intense study.

I have never had a mint julep looking forward to you having one for us! Never been to a horse race myself. I have rode a few we owned when I was growing up in Fontana. Never went to the Races The Del Mar Race track is about forty miles from me. Always was afraid of a new addiction (wagering on the ponies)!

My first ex-wife's uncle trained quarter horses so I got the chance to see things behind the scenes. Wow, what an eye opener that was I'm sure things have changes some as that was over 30 yrs ago. We are looking forward to the whole Derby experience. Ms Tejun even found a hat shop in Louisville that will design a hat, deliver it to the hotel for her, then pick it up after the Derby and ship it back to Houston so we won't have to deal with it on the plane.
