Roses Are Red

Obviously today is the day when Trailmixers go to the starting gate with the annual run for the roses.

The use of roses was first established as part of the Derby celebration when they were presented to all the ladies attending a fashionable Louisville Derby party in 1883. The roses were such a sensation, that the president of Churchill Downs, Colonel Lewis Clark, adopted the rose as the race’s official flower.

So pour your favorite form of usqueba, topped with a bit of mint and learn the lyrics to My Old Kentucky Home. Warning I always tear up when they get to “Weep No More My Lady”
