At this station you record yourself calling a race. Travis pretty much ignored the tips and was saying things like "And now there are some horses running..." To bed you couldn't get a copy to take home.
I love the flowers! And the metal mint julip cups. The winner is presented with 12 cups like that, to use at their party the next year I guess. Haha.
Jockeys are so cute! There was a cute diplay of their little uniforms. There was also the horse shoeing hall of fame, with a video of the shoeing process. It blew our minds, for real!
I really recommend the derby museum! Even if you have no interest in horse racing, the interactive exhibits are so fun! We were there for a few hours, then we asked about how much it was to get into the races. The guy at the desk said that sometimes their members don't use all the tickets for the museums box, and gave us tickets! It was awesome! So I recommend going on a race day, so you can get the whole experience.
We decided to place a little bet! We bet 5 dollars on 6 to win, and 1 to show. (We learned in the museum that first, second, and third are win, show, place in racing). We were SO awkward at the wagering window! Total noobs.
Our bet tickets! How exciting! My dad when on a work trip there when I was young and he brought me back all of his tickets. I loved it! He also sent me a postcard with a baby horse on it.
Hanging out in the box! I think this was a "what do you think of the julip" face. The track wasn't very crowded. There are races every 30 minutes. We watched the horses who were running in race six warm up.
