The Kentucky Derby – wow, what an AWESOME experience. When Vineyard Vines invited me to the Kentucky Derby, I jumped on the chance. I’ve been trying to go to for years (yes, actually) as I have a good from from Louisville and it’s just never worked out. FINALLY, I made it there and without a doubt, I’d love to go back. Although the weather didn’t cooperate on Derby Day (I believe it was the most rain on record), I had a wonderful time. Plus, I am a former equestrian (rode from age 5 – 17) and I love horses–even if I was a little scared for them and the riders in those conditions.
We drove outside of Louisville to the Woodford Reserve for a bourbon tour and tasting. It was super interesting and as a somewhat history buff, I loved hearing about what happened to the distillery during Prohibition.
