Summer plans, including the Stephen Foster and Pacific Classic

Tomorrow is Belmont Stakes day, which means summer isn’t too far behind!

My husband and I have some horse racing-related plans coming up. Next Saturday, June 15, we are going to Churchill Downs for the Stephen Foster and Fleur de Lis, as we did last year. Both races are looking to be stand-outs. As she did last year, Royal Delta hopes to use the Fleur de Lis as a springboard for bouncing back from her loss in Dubai. This time I plan to use the DSLR at the race—hopefully I get some decent photos!

Then on August 23 we will fly to San Diego, California, to spend a weekend at Del Mar for the Pacific Classic! We are very excited, and we plan to get some beach time in as well—I haven’t been in the ocean since I was a little girl, so it’ll be different and fun. I will most definitely be bringing the DSLR on that trip and will get photos galore. My birthday is August 22 so this trip will be a birthday celebration as well—why not? I think it’s amazing that a little over a year ago, both Saratoga and Del Mar were racetracks that we hoped to visit “someday”. A few months later, we found ourselves at Saratoga and now we are headed to Del Mar. The world works in funny ways sometimes.

In between, we will spend some time at Arlington Park, as usual. On a more personal note, I hope that Limerick and I can get a lot of riding done this summer, too.
