Keeneland opens this Friday and the weather is supposed to be spectacular! It looks like we may actually have a taste of spring here in the Bluegrass! My morning will start bright and early by getting in line for the commemorative 2010 Maker's Mark Keeneland bottle. This year's bottle is a tribute to Coach John Calipari who successfully resurrected the UK basketball team. Maker’s Mark will donate proceeds from the sales – estimated to be about $300,000 from 24,000 bottles – to an extension program that is bringing the UK Symphony Orchestra and students from the UK School of Music into public schools and communities throughout Kentucky. I am not one of those crazy die hard UK fans, but thaKing and I already have somewhat of burgeoning Maker's Mark commemorative bottle collection going, plus it's a great cause.
That afternoon will be spent at Keeneland with thaKing and some of the fabulous Bunco babes where we will hopefully win some $$. I recently purchased the above dress to wear. I just need to find time to get my spray tan on so as not blind the horses!
