Derby Oaksby Rebecca Mance on 05/06/16
Move aside boys...it is all about the girls today at Derby Oaks and fillies' race...supporting breast cancer. I wish my mother had lived to see a race. Cheers to you mom and a cure that will come in time for someone's mother, sister, wife....daughter.
I can't be at Oaks, but will be wearing my Derby Oaks dress and hat, (worn there a few years ago to the Oaks races) to Golden Gate Fields in SF for the Derby. Today, I hope to catch Oaks on t.v. at work....if I am lucky, wine could be involved depending on timing of race. No mint julips to be found. However, tomorrow on Derby Day, since I couldn't be there again.....I found a spot to celebrate at Gold Gate Fields where Four Roses is sponsoring a big Derby Party. Mint Julips, undoubtedly, will be involved. Don't worry, I think 2017 is a great year for me to finally get back to the Derby. I have been four times, how lucky is that. Well, shooting for 2017. Meanwhile, cheers to the girls and tomorrow I will celebrate the Derby in San Francisco....who knew it was possible?
Wearing Derby Oaks shirt today.... to bring a little Kentucky to San Francisco. Hopefully I won't get mugged on BART. Giggles. Here is one for the girls...safe race...lots of fun and cheers to Churchill Downs from San Francisco. Have a mint julip for me.....
