Derby Day

UPDATE: Irish War Cry came in around 10th place. Congrats to Always Dreaming. He had a great day.

Well, it’s Derby Day at Churchill Downs. After yesterday’s disaster picks, I’m a little bummed out. BUT, today is a new day!

After the post picks on Wednesday, I’ve really had Irish War Cry #17 on my mind. No horse has won the Derby from post position #17. I’m thinking that in year 2017, #17 just might be the year!

Anyway, here’s a photo of the paddock area at Churchill Downs in June several years ago. The jockey has just mounted the horse for the race.

Kentucky Derby

Are you ready for the Derby this weekend?? I’m looking forward to this Saturday, May 6th at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky. I hope the weather improves for the people attending! Right now the forecast is rainy and cool. Kind of glad I’ll be watching from home this year.

June is the perfect month to visit Churchill Downs. Take a look at my Kentucky page for more photos.

Here’s a gray horse that just finished his race…. he didn’t win though.

Cow Painting

These cows were up in the North Carolina mountains, way up in very rural country. My father and I took a jeep ride on a road that only a 4 wheel could navigate. My father passed away almost 2 years ago. What a wonderful memory this is for me.

This photo is a digital oil painting from the original. Fine Art America has a lot of options for wall art.
