I live in the city where the Oaks and Derby are run and work just a few minutes from the twin spires. I love Oaks and Derby – I was raised going to Derby parties and all the wonderful festivities the city puts on in celebration. We don’t mess around. It’s kind of our thing.
Oaks is particularly special to me because it was one of the first dates my fiancé and I went on together. I can’t seem to find any photos from that day so I’ll steal some photos from his social media so you have some proof of our residence :o)
We aren’t going this year but I’ll be watching and handicapping online. Totally unrelated, but I hope you like the blog’s new look! We had the black look for a while and I wanted something fresh that is still really readable. Tell me what you think!
Do you have a pick for Oaks and/or Derby this year?
