A mint julep vendor at work. This year the juleps were $9.00, beer was $7.00, and a bottle of water was $4.00. Most food items were $8.00. A UPS 747 jumbo jet comes in for a landing at the Louisville airport on Oaks day. UPS has their main hub in Louisville.
 
Kentucky Derby winning jockey Calvin Borel celebrates while parading for the fans. Trainer Todd Pletcher doesn't look like he enjoyed Derby day very much. He had 5 of the 20 horses this year and his best finish was 6th. He is now 0 for 19 in the Derby with Invisible Ink's second place finish in 2001 his best so far.
 
This was one of the more interesting hats I saw over the weekend. He had the rabbit's foot on one side and a rose on the other.
 
A couple of the pony horses from Derby day. They had ribbons to match the horse they escorted in the Derby braided into their tails. An outrider catches a loose horse on Wednesday morning during the workouts.
