    My family follows the derby every year! My dad goes for the racing and my mom and I love the fashion along with some races! We all talk about going to the derby one year! We loved following along with American Pharoah last year ( oh the excitement). Having your snapchat to see some extra access at the derby makes it even more exciting! I was pretty excited that i knew some of the answers in your post before reading them! I must be picking up the derby style ? Thanks for the post Carrie! I low a good derby read ?

    1. Carrie says:

      Ah cool! I loved reading all that, Sydney! Thanks as always for following along and for all the love and support.

    i am going to the queens plate in july, which is the canadian version of the kentucky durby (on a smaller scale lol) so this is going to come in handy 🙂


    1. Carrie says:

      Oh how interesting, Carolina! I have been to horse races around the world (Dubai, UK, France, etc.), but not in Canada. I’ll have to look that one up and add it to the list.
