Derby Candle - 4oz


Derby Candle - 4oz



The arrival of summer always meant counting down the days until the Sonoma County Fair. The rides, cotton candy and hall of flowers were the prelude to the Thoroughbred horse races. My mom and I would arrive early and watch the horses be lead around so we could try to guess who we thought would win. Shiny coats, haunches rippling with muscle and a keen eye for the feisty ones meant we had a pretty good average in selecting winners. One time my mom even placed a bet on a horse I thought would win. I maybe even took that dollar up to the ticket counter and because I was a cute kid, the lady let me place the bet. But maybe I imagined that.... then that pony ran swiftly across the finish line and I won $21. It might as well have been a fortune because I was so proud.  Later those dollars were stuffed in my piggy bank so I could save to buy more Breyer horses.
