We were so excited to make it to the Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks this year. This has been on our bucket list for years and we were not disappointed! The hats, the horses, the drinks, and that old southern charm… a Mellor dream come true. We learned the Derby is much more than just a horse race, it’s a southern tradition that brings out great people from all walks of life. Derby day was pretty rainy and the track was officially rated as “sloppy” which is the technical term for mud puddle. Unfortunately we didn’t have our money on Orb, the Derby winning horse, but we walked away with an amazing weekend that will go down in the books. It’s true what they say, “the old south tastes so sweet.” Hope we can make it back another year.
