Did you get your Derby Day on? Even though I didn't get to Churchill Downs this year, that doesn't mean I didn't get to celebrate the biggest racing day of the year in style! As a major horse enthusiast - I started riding at 5, had a column in Sidelines, an international equestrian magazine, and of course made my parents get me a pony or two - so when it comes to the the Kentucky Derby, there's no horsing around!
I celebrated the fastest two minutes in sports at where else but Saxon and Parole, one of the most equestrian themed spots in NYC...seriously though, the place is named after two famed racehorses. While everyone looked great in their hats and seersucker suits, I quickly spotted the best looking stud in the room, tall dark and handsome. That's right, Hudson was the most handsome horse around...let's just say I wouldn't mind taking him for a ride around the block!
While I didn't pick the winning horse - though he was in my top 3 - the fashionistas and mint juleps, made by none other than Saxon and Parole's famous bartender, made everyone feel like a winner!
