The Queen's Cup

One thing that I have discovered about myself this year is that I function more positively when I have something to look forward to. Whether it’s a haircut, dinner with friends, or even a weekend getaway, my attitude towards things has a tendency to be a bit better. With Spring Break, it was nice to be able to count the weeks down as the break approached and putting time passing into more short-term segments tends to make things a bit less overwhelming. With my Spring Break ending on Sunday I was a little concerned about how I could take the eight-week chunk of time until summer and break it down into more manageable segments based on fun plans. An end of April weekend trip to Charlotte for the Queen’s Cup seemed like the perfect solution.



I had heard about the Queen’s Cup through my roommate Ellison who is from Charlotte. She talked about how much fun the event was when she was younger and went. This put the idea in my head to spend one Saturday in April in Charlotte at the event as a way to give us something to look forward to. I’ve never been to a horse race so I’m excited to have the opportunity to attend this social and sporting event in a few short weeks with my friends.

If you’re unfamiliar with the Queen’s Cup and are looking for a fun weekend activity with your friends, the Queen’s Cup is one of the top 6 sporting events in the region. From the amazing tailgates, fancy hats, and bow ties to the powerful horses, the event perfectly combines sport, fashion, tailgating, and fundraising. Sounds like a win to me. Taking place on the grounds of Brooklandwood in the Piedmont region, the Queen’s Cup is the perfect way to ring in Spring. There are tailgating contests, live music, delicious food, and of course the excuse to get dressed up to watch the five races in which the horses race two miles or more at about 30 miles per hour. The day will kick off with the Jack Russell Terrier race at 11:30 and end after the races with the annual hot walk party where there’s live music and hors d’oeuvres.



The badges for the event just went on sale and are available to purchase online here or at a local Harris Teeter in Charlotte. I know that my friends and I are excited to make a day out of the event and will be tailgating and enjoying the festivities. If you’re planning to attend, definitely purchase your tickets before April 18th since the price for badges increases on that day.




If y'all are derby regulars please let me know any tips you may have. And if you're local to the Charlotte, NC area I'd love to know if you're attending the event as well. If you haven't gotten your tickets yet, be sure to snag them here

  1. So, so, so jealous! I did horse riding for eight years when I was a kid and I am a horse fanatic. Had to stop my lessons because they got too expensive for my family. What a fantastic time to derby looks! ❤️

  19. I'm Thomas Yi from the United States. I started playing lottery games 3 years ago and I have never won big. I went online to seek help on how I can win big in my lottery games and I saw some nice reviews about Dr Amber who has made different people huge winners in their lottery games with his prayers. I gave it a try and I contacted Dr Amber who told me how and what to do before I can become a big lotto winner and I accepted. He made special prayers for me at his temple and gave me the required numbers to play the lotto game and when I played it, I won a massive $235.4 million POWERBALL jackpot. I was so happy and I chose to receive my winnings in a one-time, lump-sum payment of $160,038,447.27 at Florida Lottery Headquarters in Tallahassee and the balance was given to the store that I bought & played the game from. I would love other people to seek help from him and he can be contacted through WhatsApp/call/text via this number +1 (406) 646-2222 or you can email him on: amberlottotemple@yahoo.com

  20. My wife of 4 years broke up with me because I was broke but I never told her I was playing the lottery because I wanted to surprise her whenever I win a huge amount. I was so heart broken and I decided to seek help from friends and family before I saw a post of RUTH BREEN about a man called LORD ZAKUZA saying how he helped her win a lottery worth ONE MILLION POUNDS. I contacted Lord Zakuza via WhatsApp  +1 740-573-9483 and explained my situation to him. He spoke to me like a father and told me he was going to prepare a spell for me to get my wife back and also give me numbers & where to play the lottery. I did everything he asked of me and within 48 hours, my wife came back to me seeking forgiveness and I was called 4 days after that I was the winner of 383 MILLION DOLLARS from the lottery I played. I have never seen such a miracle in my life. No matter what you are going through, there's always a solution.

  24. I'm here to applaud the good work of Dr Amber that has really been wonderful doing good with his magical spells. I usually play the lottery but coming up with a big win has never been my thing not until I came in contact with Dr Amber who a lot of people have been so thankful to for his miraculous doings. I told Dr Amber that I needed to win the Lottery in a big way that Lottery winnings have never favored me from the very start. He explained to me that not everyone is luckily blessed to win the Lottery but with his spells, he can make me a Lottery winner and I agreed to what he said. He prepared the spell for me and told me the exact ticket to pick that made me a winner of £180,000,000 MILLION POUNDS. I made sure Dr Amber had 10% from my winnings because indeed his spells are magnificent. Thank you sir for all you do. Anyone out there that needs help in any area of life can Email Dr Amber via: amberlottotemple@yahoo.com or go to: amberlottotemple.com
