Virginia Gold Cup

In May I went to Gold Cup with my dear friend Crazy K. We have been friends ever since we met at Roanoke.

There were five races throughout the day and I was excited to see some Maryland horses I recognized win.

Duff from "Ace of Cakes" was judging the competition.

This was by the far the most unique needlepoint piece I have ever seen...after meeting this character, I was trying to figure out what his needlepoint belt symbolized. I finally asked and he replied " It's everything I don't like...dogs, children and ugly women". I was a little taken back...but to each their own!



Special thanks to Crazy K and her mom for a fantastic time. I had a wonderful time with the Wahoos...it was so much fun catching up. xx

Looks like a fun day! I definitely want to go next year! And the needlepoint guy, is he expecting to pick up women with that belt? He may be disappointed... Have a great day! xoxo

Oh how I miss those days at Gold Cup. Went to Radford University and all my sorority sisters and I looked forward to dressing up with our dresses and hats. Great pics!

Great shots of a great race day...Your horse themed shirt is very sporty!
That guy and his belt ...a tad obnoxious,no?

RHW said...

That belt isn't all that unique...can be found in stores. It represents crying babies, those little yippy pug dogs, and fat women.

I had never seen a needlepoint belt of that nature...who know there was a market! Does anyone know the name of this pattern?

That cake is da bomb, that belt hysterical and I am still kicking myself from walking away from that J McL dress in pale blue silk several years ago...XXOO
