    All hats and lots of fun for the ladies at the Kentucky Oaks 2014

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Ethicist1 attended the Kentucky Oaks horserace on May 2, which was a day before the Kentucky Derby. He had a chance to photograph the dressed up crowd attending the horserace.
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer

    The Kentucky Derby or the run for the roses (as it is also called) is about to begin in a couple of hours but the day before is when the atmosphere is more relaxed and appropriate for girls to have fun. I Texas there is a term for a lot of talk and no action which goes something like All hat and no cattle. Well at the Oaks there are a lot of hats and a lot of fun for female jockies, young female horses and for all the girls who just want to have a good time. Cocktails (mainly mint julep) flow like water and money changes hands faster than the passing seconds. This year there was a surprise drum beat from 4 energetic drummers who got the passing ladies into a spontaneous dance mood and the packed crowd was dominated by the pink color. The images were taken in Louisville, KY at the Churchill Downs, the home to Kentucky Derby for 140 years.
