A gambler I am NOT.
A risk taker I am NOT.
Lucky, I am NOT.
So on a super fun trip to Churchill Downs (home of the Kentucky Derby) this past Sat. I did not expect to win or even bet on a race.
But after a short lesson from Dory's super sweet husband on horse racing, I decided to give it a try. Based on the best odds and the fact that the horse was wearing pink (that's a great reason to choose a horse, don't you think?) I chose number 8 and went to the window to place my bet.
The horses lined up and they were off!
It was so fun to cheer for my horse- even though he was behind for most of the race.
Imagine my surprise when he pulled ahead and WON the race!
Go me! (And horse number 8!)
