A Day at the Races

My dad's side of the family has always been very into horse racing. Growing up and even a decade later, I still have fond memories of our Kentucky Derby party, going up to the Saratoga track and to the Preakness in Maryland where I have been able to see some legend horses and jockeys race.  

This year was a particularly exciting Belmont Stakes, the last jewel in the Triple Crown. Though this year sadly continued the streak of not having a Triple Crown winner, it was so nice to get out to the Preakness track. There is something about the aura of the sunshine and even horse smell that you start to love. If you haven't seen the movies Seabiscuit or Secretariat, they are definitely worth a watch. 

Happy Sunday! Hope you had a wonderful weekend!
