How fun to have an annual celebration of such history and elegance! It's just not the same here---this one's on such a huge scale, and the ruuuum-ruuuuuuuuuuuuum of engines and whiz-past of the tiny cars on the that enormous expanse of concrete are no match for your Blue Grass and noble steeds. And the elevated prices on EVERYTHING for the month of May are the bane of all permanent residents---those things certainly have not the elan and charm of Derby parties, gatherings on pristine lawns, evening porches with juleps and Benedictine sandwiches and lively conversation.

I'm extremely pleased and proud of our city, but I'd swap the EVENT with yours, just for the elegance and suave beauty of it. Besides, a bevy of ladies in capricious hats bespeaks a wonderful, charming event to come, and those magnificent horses are magical wonders.

Enjoy every beautiful moment!
