Given Barbaro's spectacular, widely documented rise and fall, the outcome of the big race is never in question, but May is more concerned with savoring small moments of laconic humor and gentle humanity than the ultimate outcome of the race.
May uses the quirks and well-worn traditions of horse racing as a vehicle to quietly explore idiosyncrasies of the human condition. The Hennegans present a surprisingly broad cross-section of people, from a soft-spoken veteran horse trainer with multiple sclerosis who toils proudly for the Dubai royal family to a wheelchair-bound perfectionist with a gaggle of precocious sons for whom a Derby win would mean not just fame and fortune, but also kick-ass new skateboards. May takes its sweet time getting to the big day, but that eventually works in its favor, since the filmmakers are ultimately more concerned with the journey than the destination.
In the Hennegans' affable, engaging love letter to everything equine and tradition-bound, getting there is way more than half the fun. Photos are great. I think that Kat is so beautiful but really looks tired. I am delighted reading your adventures can at the Derby and the Guys, whoa what a handsome group. Have a great week. Beth Reed. The Derby post every year is one I always look forward to. I love how much detail we get and all the pictures!
Thanks for sharing, Nora! I love your Derby post. You looked liked a regal tall glass of grey elegance. I love reading about the Derby every year. Your outfits and hats are gorgeous. They look very comfortable. Love love your Derby trips. You all look so chic and loved your red shoes and Kat is glowing.

First Saturday in May - Southern Cultures
Thank you so very much for including us in this adventure. Sounds like you had a glorious time with friends! Thank you Nora for another Derby experience. I was with you in picking Mendelssohn I seem to always pick with my heart and not a favorite. Irish horse, trainer and jockey what could be better. Maybe next year! As a life long native.
You need to come for This by. It a day for us locals. The rest is for the out if towners. I love your outfits and so glad you came. Wishing all the best to Kat and her expected little one. Congratulations to all! I look forward to your Derby post every year. And your vacation ones, too. I rooted for Magnum Moon, because I had picked up a jacket with a huge patch of his sire, Malibu Moon, when I was in Lexington several years ago. Thanks for the Big Easy reference. Best wishes to Kat and the whole family. Have a great summer. Your email address will not be published.
