This is just way too cool! We recorded Derby coverage on Derby Day 2007 last year so we could watch it when we got home from the Derby. What a surprise when they showed my friend Lori's and my laughing faces holding Mint Juleps while the credits rolled! That's a highly coveted spot in any programming... remember the show Wide World of Sports where every week they showed the Joy of Victory... the Agony of Defeat while the credits rolled? EVERYONE remembers those crashes!
Well.... THERE I WAS! Laughing and talking to Lori 61" big and it was so awesome!
Guess WHAT? We're sitting here right this minute watching Derby coverage on ESPN and they're flashing pictures of ladies in their Derby hats and they flashed us AGAIN! We're in their photo archives!
The pic they're showing isn't even from last year's Derby when they showed it... it was from the year before... 2 years ago when Steppenwolfer, my hubby's boss's horse ran and got 3rd in the Derby and altho we didn't get to get our shoes dirty in the Winner's Circle with him, at least he was in the money!
PS.... Capote Belle is also my hubby's boss's horse and I've been in the Winner's Circle with her about 6 times... once she won the Humana Distaff on Derby Day and another time in Toronto, Canada when she won the Juvenile Fillies during the Breeder's Cup races! She was AWESOME as a sprint horse and it was way cool to be in the Winner's Circle ON DERBY DAY AT CHURCHILL DOWNS! She has been a brood mare now for quite awhile but every baby she's had has died. She's pregnant again now and hopefully she'll have a healthy baby this time.
