Lady birds grab your big flowered hats and gentlebirds dig out your fancy duds and fedoras. It is going to be a hot time in the old town this weekend. The first annual running of the Milonga Derby will take place at the newly constructed racetrack and stands located right outside the Milonga Ballroom.
The gates open at 8PM EDT and the fun will begin with complementary mint juleps (see the profile pic on the milonga page!), and there will be plenty of time to check out the horses, pick your favorites and place your bets with RaneBeau at the betting window.
Bailey will do the Call to Post at 8:25 with the assistance of our bugler, Hulk, who will accompany the horses and riders to the strains of "My old Milonga Home" as they parade past the stands.
Gate time and the beginning of the race will be at 8:30, and you want to have your bets placed on your favorites, because it is every bird for him/herself once that bell rings. Bailey will be calling the race, and the excitement and thrill of our friends flying around the mile and a quarter track will lift your spirits and speed up your heart.
Immediately after the race is over the winning steed will receive a blanket of roses in the winner's circle and our lovely first lady of the milonga, SweetPepper, will present the trophy to the winning jockey.
And if that is not enough to get you out of your May doldrums a fantastic spread will be served in the club house with dancing hosted by our very own BOTM, Falco, in the ballroom next door.
So you see there is something for everybirdy this time, and I can't wait to wave to you all from the track! That's right, I will be riding along with BB, Cap'n Morgan, Chi chi, Gus, Kaji, Maxie, Raven, Sam & Willie. So get your party duds all spruced up, and your dancing shoes polished. This is going to be the event of the BC year. You had better not miss it, 'cause I bet (get it?) you'll be sorry if you do.
Kiddo & Bailey
