Opening Day at Del Mar

I’ve loved horses for as long as I can remember.  My teenage years pretty much revolved around riding my horse in rodeos all over the Southeast.  And it’s always been a dream of mine to go to the Kentucky Derby.  So far that opportunity hasn’t come up, but when our friends suggested a trip to Opening Day at Del Mar last week I jumped at the opportunity.

We scurried up to Del Mar as soon as I finished work and met up with our friends, who had taken a party bus up earlier.  Soon we were all placing bets, toasting beers, and watching the ponies run.  We weren’t big winners (my horse scratched before the race) but we had a lot of fun.


I can’t wait to go back for another race.  They run Tuesday-Sunday for the next two months or so, starting at 2 PM.

    This looks so fun! I’ve never been to a horse race before but not I definitely want to go–if only to wear a cute hat and dress!
