we bravely faced the ridiculous heat index, telling ourselves we’d weathered many sweltering days in the past.  racetrack, bluegrass fest, then back to the races to watch the gardenia stakes.  good bbq at the fest, had to have some of that slaw from the track, and a couple of beers were just enough.  i tell ya, though, i thought i was gonna diiee at one point and stumbled over to one of the fans at the track and stood in front of it until i revived enough to sit down………came home and dipped off in the pool and survived…..

bluegrass in the park
#9 in the 9th (my bet) coming in 4th
