Derby 139: Post Parade

It's been a week since Derby Day and I'm just getting around to posting some Derby pictures from my spot in the winner's circle. With all the hullabaloo about where the media was going to watch the race, my spot on the rail was as good as anywhere else. I was able to see all of the horses parade by (see below) after coming out from the paddock and it was a great spot to be in to see Orb make his move and fly by us.

My post-Derby pre-Preakness thoughts are up at the Sports, Ink blog and am gearing up to head to Baltimore next weekend for a fun weekend in racing. My favorite race day of the year, believe it or not, is Black-Eyed Susan Day at Pimlico. Hanging out at the sixteenth (or is it the eighth?) pole and having a cigar and a cocktail or two while enjoying top flight racing -- can't beat it, and am really looking forward to it.

So here are some pictures from the rail during the post parade of all 19 horses and some post-race photos after the big win.
