A day at the races limerick

Kentucky Derby 143 limerick

I was in my own living room, in the recliner, on this cold Derby Day in 2017. It hit 50° in Lexington for a high, and the 40s before and after, which can create slightly purple fingertips.

On Derby Eve Eve, I had the honor of working a charity gala as the stage producer. You know it’s a good gig when the venue is a horse farm and this is the view on the way in.

Whether it's black, white or anything in between, horse fencing is a pretty sight.

Horse farms in Kentucky are all pretty, all the time.
