Kentucky Derby at Laterra Links, World Golf Village
The beautiful Amenity Center at Laterra Links in World Golf Village provided the perfect setting to host residents and guests as they joined together in celebration of the 143rd Kentucky Derby on Saturday, May 6th. All 62 horse race fans in attendance enjoyed the Kentucky Derby Party which was sponsored by our own local Kentuckians and Laterra Links homeowners, Bruce and Nancy Swenson.
The Kentucky Derby has been held at Churchill Downs since 1875, making this year the 143rd running of the classic horse race. Often called “the most exciting two minutes in sports”, the guests at this Kentucky Derby Party made the most of those two minutes by beginning the festivities at 5:00. The ladies (and a few of the gentlemen) arrived dressed in their derby finery including fancy hats embellished with feathers, frills and other finery. While awaiting the start of the big race, guests were invited to vote for the best Derby hat, cast bets on their favorite Derby horse and enjoy Derby snacks along with complimentary Mint Julips and Oaks Lily cocktails. A real Churchill Downs atmosphere right here in the World Golf Village!
As the race began, guests gathered around the big screen to cheer on the horses and jockeys. The excitement of seeing Always Dreaming cross the line first in the field of 20 brought smiles to all and congratulations to those who had bet on him. As the evening came to an end, talk of upcoming Laterra Links social events and plans for next year’s Derby Party could be heard.
