Ok, no horses got shot, but a conspiracy of events kept me from live blogging from Keeneland in Lexington on Friday. By ‘conspiracy of events,’ I mean I couldn’t get my BB to work right and they pour bourbon in the AM.
All in all, a great time. Folks were dressed like it was a football Saturday in Oxford (read: sundresses and sports coats) and despite the persistent rain, lightning, tornado threats and the total epic fail of my horse betting system, we had a great time. I’m very glad Keeneland didn’t exist in Athens when I was there. My academic career would have had a very different path.
I did snap a couple of pictures showing the rain (sort of)
and the sections, named by bourbon.
I’ll have my thoughts on GDay and that little golf tournament in Augusta later.
