Kentucky Colonels Day at Churchill Downs

This past weekend I made the trip up to Louisville, KY for Kentucky Colonels Day at Churchill Downs. The Kentucky Colonels is a social and philanthropic group. Each year the group hosts the Kentucky Derby Extravaganza and several other social events as well as donating over a million dollars to deserving Kentucky based non-profits.

I was made a Colonel when I was a teenager and it is a tradition in my family. This weekend's event was held on "Millionaire's Row" at Churchill Downs. We spent the day eating, drinking and watching/betting on the horse races. It was a great weekend!

Did you wear the bridle bracelet you got at the Derby back in the Spring?
