the famous churchill downs

Otherwise known as home of the Kentucky Derby.  The morning I took these, we went here.  (Can you believe there is not a single leaf left on that tree?)  The fall colors are slowly disappearing.  Sad.  Anyway... before we move away from Louisville we knew we had to tour Churchill downs.  It's way different than I pictured, but really cool to see in person.  If you ever find yourself in Louisville, you should go.  It was really cold that morning!  But better than going in the deathly summer... which is what we were trying to avoid (;
Have you been?

I have never been, but your photos make me want to go now! What beautiful images- especially the close-up one of the horse's face... gorgeous.

And you are just too cute! I love your outfit!

Wow these pictures are so beautiful...you also make me wish that I could pull off being a brunette, but trust me, after a brief stint in high school, it's best to just leave it at that! Anyway, you look super cute!

I wish I would've toured the place like this in Oklahoma City when we lived there last year. I just never thought of it!
