Had an absolute blast at the 2015 Virginia Gold Cup thanks to my most excellent horsey friend and her connections with their Member's Hill tent! The weather was perfect, the horses were beautiful (my former employer and her groom won best turned out in their race...sadly they did not win, but dammit the horse looked great), the colors were bright and the hats were a plenty. I missed Gold Cup (both of them) so much. Virginia horse country is truly an amazing wonderland of fun.
We skipped the Derby shenanigans in favor of returning home and watching the full program on DVR. Most excellent choice and a perfect end to the day!
