Love the Limerick and the picture. Would make racing interesting to colour all the horses, but i suspect there might be a few objections. Congratulations on your win Roy! :-)

Funny, Roy. I guess you've given us a new twist on "racing colors". Churchill Downs may never be the same ... Thanks, Dave

Thank you very much for your very kind comment David, I have never been to Churchill Downs but from pictures and film it looks a wonderful place to visit especially for the Kentucky Derby, thanks again, Roy. :))
