ARKANSAS DERBY DAY at Oaklawn Park Race Track 2015 and we were there. I had never been to the Derby so I added it to my bucket list and took it off the same day.
There were over 67,000 people filling the stands and the infield. We walked through the tunnel to the infield. It was like one big party. Live music in the Pavilion, families having picnics, and some on blankets or lawn chairs just people watching. The weather was perfect. Yes, some wore gaudy hats like they do at the Kentucky Derby. (Some hats should have been left at home!)
The highlight of the day was the 11th Race when American Pharoah out ran the field in grand style. He is considered one of the favorite contenders for the Triple Crown this year.
Tiny Tidy for Today-Going Crackers! - Don't throw away those stale crackers. Just pop them in a 200 degree oven for 10 or 12 minutes. Voila-you now have fresh crispy crackers!
