The first Saturday in May brought a few showers and lot of smiles at Equestrian Lakes’ Derby party for residents and guests. With more than 120 in attendance, there was no shortage of big hats and sun dresses, despite the lack of sunshine.

Adults and children alike showed up ready to eat, drink and merrily cheer on their horse during a full afternoon of racing projected on two large screens. The atmosphere was energetic with friendly intensity as guests hoped the horse they drew was a jackpot winner. And as the horses turned for home in the Run for the Roses, all eyes were on Justified as he crossed the wire, earning a win in the first leg of the Triple Crown.

Thank you to everyone who helped us celebrate Kentucky’s biggest holiday at Kentucky’s premier equestrian community!
