Hi Ms Alex
Thanks, you will have to read my derby blogs to your mom too.
The rose first became associated with the Derby via a party. Ladies were each presented a rose at a Louisville Derby gathering. Upon seeing the sensation this caused, Colonel M Lewis Clark, founder of Churchill Downs and The Kentucky Derby, made the rose the official flower of the race. The rose garland now synonymous with the Kentucky Derby first appeared in 1896 when the winner received a floral arrangement of roses. In 1904 the red rose became the official flower of the Kentucky Derby. Each year 554 roses are sewn into a green satin backing with the seal of the commonwealth of Kentucky on one end. On the other end is the Twin Spires with the number of the running. The Kroger Company has been the official florist of the Derby since 1987. It is constructed the night before in view of the public.
The winning jockey receives a bouquet of 60 long stemmed roses wrapped in ten yards of ribbon.
PS ... we still have 2 feet of snow and more to come on Saturday!!!!!
