Join us for the unveiling of the Barbaro Memorial Statue outside of Gate 1.  The dedication begins at 10:30 a.m.  Roy and Gretchen Jackson, the owners of Barbaro, will be in attendance.

The day's racecard begins at 12:45 p.m.  Friends of Barbaro are invited to enjoy the race day in a special reserved area in Section 115.

I will be headed to the races along with a few others so please join us.  I just have to see the actual track.

LOL!  Maybe by all the Barbaro stuff we will have on or the tear stained faces! 

Actually, I really don't know however the tickets for that section are $3.00 and only $1.00 if you have a twin spires card (which I got for free!)

I am so excited.  Barbaro has been a part of our lives for so long now.  I can't remember what it was like before coming here in the evenings.  I am ready to have the closure of his memorial and resting place.  I will love to see him  in all his glory once again. It should be memoriable day.  It will also be the first time that I get to see live racing.  I have watched it and loved it for over 20 years...since I was 9 and saw the Kentucky derby with Sunday Silence and Easy Goer.  This is my dream trip!

I am not getting emotional.  I wouldn't be able to go, but I will be there in spirit.  How can they miss the FOB's I am sure you all will be decked out.

I too started with Sunday Silence and Easy Goer. Really, I think I watched Winning Colors and that is what got me started.
