AN ICON AND HERO
The Junior National Limousin Show this year was in Lexington, KY at the Kentucky Horse Park. It is a beautiful place and well worth a stop if you ever make it to Lexington. While we were there, I took the opportunity to head over to Louisville and visit Churchill Downs which was a highlight of the week. The real excitement came with a visit to Claiborne Farms in Paris, KY. Claiborne Farms were gracious hosts even letting us take pictures with Orb the 2013 Kentucky Derby winner. For me, I got to see my hero Secretariat. It was only his grave, but definitely something that I have wanted to do since 1973 when he won the Triple Crown. There may never be another as good has Secretariat. I checked one item off of the bucket list!
