Location: Kentucky Horse Park Campground, Lexington, Kentucky
Dates: Apr. 21 to 23, 2018
After leaving Nashville, we made a quick two day stop in Lexington, Kentucky for the weekend. Some of Malcolm’s high school classmates and their spouses decided it would be fun to get together to watch some horse racing at Keeneland Race Track on Sunday afternoon.
We stayed at the Kentucky Horse Park since they had open spots available for the weekend. After we got set up, one of Malcolm’s classmates brought over the group’s reserved seating tickets since she couldn’t attend. We volunteered to stand out front of the race track and hand out the tickets.
Once we got set up in our spot, we did a little shopping in the campground store. The only thing we picked up was a small box of bourbon balls (Malcolm). We also ran to Kroger to pick up some of our favorite beverages and a few groceries.
Back at the trailer, we headed down to Lexington to eat at one of our favorite restaurants – Ramsey’s Diner. Of course, we both had our favorite – Hot Browns and Ale 8s.
On Sunday, we got dressed up and headed out the door somewhat early. To pass the time, we wandered around the Horse Park gift shop, before driving on to Keeneland.
Once at Keeneland, we stopped to take a picture of Val’s outfit.
Once inside, she bought a hat to go with the dress. Definitely dapper and race day stylish.
We ate a nice lunch while Malcolm looked over his picks for the races. He made a few bets but quit when he reached his limit of losing ($20).
Quite a few of Malcolm’s classmates showed up and a few couldn’t make it. Here are many of them. Some were out wandering around when this picture was taken.
We’ll put some more race day pictures in at the end of this post. We left with about two races remaining to beat the crowds and to drive across town to visit Malcolm’s Aunt Mary, Aunt Margaret and Uncle Jerry. We had a great dinner with them and talked until very late in the evening.
While we were there, our youngest daughter, Scarlet, decided to FaceTime with Nana. She got an extra treat of seeing some Great Aunts and Great Uncle.
We headed back to the trailer late and got up the next morning (Monday the 23rd) to head back toward Florida.
