And it’s run for the roses
As fast as you can
Your fate is delivered
Your moment’s at hand
It’s the chance of a lifetime
In a lifetime of chance
And it’s high time you joined
In the dance
It’s high time you joined
In the dance.
Dan Fogelberg ~ Run for the roses
Hey Guy-Gal pals!!
Wanna come along to a special dance?
Listen, it happens annually on the first weekend in May in Louisville, Kentucky, United States. It will be fun!
Come on, we gotta start planning because, ohhh my . . .
There’s sooo much to do and this weekend is almost here!!!!
Did you guess what dance I’m talking about?
Yep, it’s really not a dance, but the Kentucky Derby horse race or simply, the Run for the Roses, since the winner receives a blanket of roses and of course, lots and lots of $$.
The contestants are three-year old thoroughbred race horses.

Oh, and for you flower-power lovers, you may think there are only roses at this event, but actually, tulips, lots of them, will be in bloom for your visual delight this year!
Now ladies, we gotta get ready and the look to go for, so I hear, is the sweet Southern Belle look. The big question is:
Should we buy our fancy hat first and then our dress, or, get our dress first, and match our hat to the dress?
Arrgh, the stress . . .
Men, while us ladies are getting prepped, your job is to think vibrant. Get out your key lime, ocean or Bermuda pink slacks and wear it! The brighter the better.
Think, guys, STAND-OUT-FROM-THE-CROWD, and go for it!
Okay, I think we are just about ready . . . ladies?
and the horse, Take Charge Indy, is ready . . .
so, let’s GO to the RUN FOR THE ROSES spectacular event!!
Have you a favorite horse you would like to see win the simply charming May 2012 Kentucky Derby?
