A huge thank you everyone who came to the Spring Jewelry Boutique / Derby Party!!! It was a fantastic day. I am so grateful to have so many wonderful friends that support me and my treasured jewels. Kim made delicious Mint Juleps. There was a great turn-out and it was lots of fun!
Favorite Big Brown, trained by Rick Dutrow and ridden by Kent Desormeaux, won the 134th Kentucky Derby on Saturday by nearly five lengths, claiming the first leg of US flat racing's coveted Triple Crown.
Tragically, filly Eight Belles finished second but pulled up injured after the end of the race. She broke both front ankles and was immediately euthanized.
