With any luck (meaning it isn’t raining and I can get my BB to work right), I’ll be live blogging from Keeneland in Lexington today. The Maker’s Mile is this afternoon and I have always wanted to make a meet here. In the old days, the opening weekend of the fall meet would coincide with the Georgia-Kentucky game each year and the Keeneland experience was part of the draw for traveling to the game.
You may ask why I didn’t travel to Athens for GDay instead. It is approximately 700 miles from my house to Athens and it is only 300 to Lexington. I know, I know. Weak.
As a Maker’s Mark Ambassador, I just felt it was a great time to go.
