CHANGE OF PLANS AND HORSE RACES

Welcome Wednesday. I had it all planned what I'd post today, but as often happens in the world of writing, my plans have changed. I will mention my forthcoming book, but don't have the cover yet to show you. Will have it soon, I think. So, today, I'd like to share some pictures with you, instead. Imagine that. Did you watch the Kentucky Derby last Saturday? If not, I have pictures of the race and the winner. Enjoy. If you don't care for horses, there are a couple pictures of the cats and what they thought of the race.


 The track was muddy, as you can see.
 
 
This one's a bit blurry, too far away I guess.
 
 
Poor horses. I don't know how they ran in the mud.
 
And the winner is:
 
 
Always Dreaming. Isn't he a beauty?
 
 
This is what Patches thought about the race.
 
 
Tiger wasn't impressed either.
 
Stop by Monday where I hopefully will have news about my latest novel.
 
Happy Reading!

  1. Wonderful post Beverly which brought back fond memories of my mother, you see she loved horse racing and as a child I went to the English Derby.
    Those cats certainly showed their feelings, one of them is so much like my Tabitha who was diabetic.
    Thanks for the memories Beverly
    Yvonne.

    1. How exciting that must have been, Yvonne. I know you loved Tabitha. She was a beautiful cat. Glad you enjoyed the "memories." We used to go to horse races a lot, mostly in New Mexico. Never saw the Derby live, but watch it on TV now.

  2. The mud must have been harder to run in indeed. That is what all four legs here think of anything on tv haha

    1. Yea, Pat, cats are not too impressed with horse races. They need to learn to stay out of a horse's way, however. :)

  3. The cats could care less.
    Cool you got to see it live. I wouldn't want to be the horse in the rear.

    1. Cats are mostly about relaxing, Alex. :) The race was fun to watch. We had a horse once that ran in a couple of races. Won one of them, but she was injured and did't last long. I miss her though.

  4. If it had been greyhounds chasing a bunny, that might have caught Patches and Tiger's eye.

  6. My youngest and I try to watch the triple crown every year. We are rarely successful. Life gets in the way and we forget one of the races almost every year. We were so sad to miss out on the triple crown winner last year! We did watch the Derby Saturday. Maybe this year we'll catch them all.

    1. I understand about life getting in the way, Kai. I forget them sometimes. Good luck with catching them all.

    1. I know, Kelly. It's so sad when a horse is injured. That's what happened to our mare. Short career.

  8. I love horses, but haven't watched much horse racing. I do enjoy watching horse jumping.

    Cute kitties! :)

    1. I like to watch most anything with horses in it, Jess. Thanks. The cats are spoiled, of course.

  9. I've never watched the Kentucky Derby. Is that weird?

    1. Not really, Stephanie. I imagine a lot of people haven't watched the race. It's interesting not only for the horses, but the ladies often wear beautiful hats. I don't know how that got started.

  10. I almost missed the race. I tuned it shortly after it started, so I was able to see who won. :)
