Oaks behind me, I needed Oats. On Derby morning, I was tasked with breakfast, both personally and professionally. The Historic Homes Foundation was nice enough to invite my wife and I, along with media sponsor Garden & Gun magazine, to the 34th Annual Historic Homes Foundation Derby Breakfast at Farmington Historical Plantation. The Plantation is nestled next to Sullivan University, and when I say ‘nestled’, I am speaking of the one-lane tree-lined road along the student dorms. This secluded road leads to what used to house a 50-acre hemp plantation built for John and Lucy Speed during 1815 and is now a national historic treasure.
Run for the Roses ran. Bank accounts reviewed. Remedies and/or celebrations coming to an end. The winner of the Derby this year was the aptly named “I’ll Have Another”, and the last party of the 2012 season for winning jockey Mario Guiterrez & friends was at the "Night of… One Race, One Winner, One Party" held at The Galt House on the evening of Derby Day, Saturday, May 5th.
