Weekend Update

We're half-way through August already, so what's in store for one of the few lazy summer weekends left this year?

1) The Arrogate Show
If you are into horse racing, there is a good (G1) race on NBCSN on Saturday at 8 pm EDT (the race is in California). If you follow Arrogate, theworld's richest race horse, he's going to run again, after his dismal performance a few weeks ago.  This is an "in if you win" race, meaning, you get an automatic (and fully paid trip) to the Breeder's Cup in November if you happen to win. Will the Arrogate we all know and love show up this time?  Let's hope so.

And I am a big fan of his jockey, Mike Smith, one of the best in the world.  Read this great article about him here in the New York Times.

2) USHJA Hunter Derby Finals 
Today and Saturday, in Lexington, KY, the country's most talented huner derby horses will be competing for big money in the Hunter Derby Finals.  The rounds are being streamed online but you have to pay for access which is unfortunate.  But if you happen to live near Lexington, the KY Horse Park is the place to be.

3) New Fall Arrivals at J Crew
The fall clothes are starting to come in and I am loving puffer coat in Liberty print.  Like I need another coat but I'd pair this with a navy turtleneck. And it's reversible.

4)  The Glass Castle
I actually went to see this movie early in the week as I had read the book and loved it and the movie was receiving rave reviews.  If you are ready for a deep emotional dive type movie then go see this one.  The book is excellent and I'd recommend the book too.  There is certainly going to be some Oscar buzz here and Woody Harrelson who plays the main character's father is superb.

Hope you have a wonderful Friday!
