Survival Skills: Trish Osborn

By MARIE BRADBY / Photos by MELISSA DONALD

Chair, Kentucky Derby Festival Board and Sr. VP, American Founders Bank

T

rish Osborn is one of those high-energy, fun people who’s already working out at the gym by six in the morning. She’s lifting weights and running three miles on the treadmill while many of us are still asleep. With a full-time job as senior vice president and Louisville market president of American Founders Bank, along with being the 2015 board chair of the Kentucky Derby Festival (KDF), she’s going to need all the energy she can muster. Trish, like past chairs, has a task that would test Wonder Woman: She will be attending all 70 festival events, most of which are clustered in the last two weeks of April. Trish will be diving into a mountain of clothes and shoes, changing from ball gowns to her official black jacket with the gold Pegasus emblems to festival logo wear. Trish, 54, is a Louisville native who was raised going to the festivities as a little girl. “My father would take time off during the Derby Festival, and my parents and I would go to all the events. I have all kinds of wonderful memories. “I loved going to the balloon race. It was held at Iroquois Park, and we climbed to the top to see them lift off. I was a band kid growing up and marched in the parade. My family would have a picnic on the riverside and watch the steamboat race.” After her father passed away in 1983, Trish and her mother became festival volunteers, selling Pegasus pins at the shopping malls. In 2007, she was appointed to the KDF board.

Surviving a Big Event

stay on schedule, have clean clothes, and make many dry cleaner runs.”

• Form a team. Gather a small circle of family/friends and tell them what you need, such as help with cooking, ironing, and taking care of two cairn terriers. “My friend, L.B. Gregory from Alaska, will come stay with me for three weeks to keep my house running. As guests come into town, she will coordinate meals, events, dinner reservations, etc. My team will make sure my guests are taken care of. They’ll make sure I

• Ask for support from your employer and others. “American Founders Bank has been so supportive, allowing me the time and flexibility to serve in this incredible role. My executive team at the bank will be my backup at work; they’ll also be coming for the whole week of Derby. My sweetie, John Lang, who puts up with all my craziness every year at this time, is a major

“The festival brings the entire world to Louisville for a huge celebration of a two-minute horse race,” Trish says. “Part of the success is the incredible diversity of the events. None of it gets done without a tremendous amount of work behind the scenes. “It’s such a privilege for me to have this opportunity to represent this festival, and maybe produce a memory for someone.”

source of calm in the storm.” • Have someone organize and load snacks to keep in your car. “From healthy ones like apples and bananas to Slim Jims. I also have emergency chocolate.” • Set alcohol limits. “It makes you tired. I have to keep my energy high. I want to be able to enjoy things and talk to people. So for me, there will be water everywhere and caffeine.” • Grab a large coffee, or know someone willing to get you one.

• Focus on exercising, drinking lots of water, and getting sleep. “When I get super stressed or have too many things going on, cat naps rock!” • Use music as a motivator. “If I am tired or feeling down, a little Earth, Wind, and Fire can get my energy back up. Who can listen to that music and not want to get up and dance?” • Stash plenty of emergency makeup in several locations for touch-ups. “Keep a toothbrush and toothpaste, a change of clothes, rain gear, and extra shoes in the

car. Even my hair stylist, Todd Bauer, has agreed to be on call.” • Be flexible and prepared for anything. “I keep a supply of Pegasus pins (people forget or lose them), duct tape, bungee cords, a screwdriver, a box cutter, garbage bags, phone chargers, and safety pins. You could have an event start and a windstorm comes through and blows the tablecloths off. You definitely need a flashlight because you’re up at 3 or 4 o’clock in the morning setting things up for events like the Balloon Race and the Marathon.”

— eighty-three — Truly my favorite part of the Derby season is spending Oaks with my husband. It is such a fun day with the traditional pomp and circumstance mixed with all the merriment. We can get caught up in the excitement, do a little lighthearted wagering, and just enjoy the charm of Churchill Downs together. I love it. — Lori Crowe, co-founder, Sisters Tea Parlor

L

ouisville artist Peggy Modjeski has created a sweet way to memorialize an owner’s favorite horse, whether a Thoroughbred or a Shetland pony. Peggy, 58, is a needle-felt artist and can take a bit of hair from a horse’s mane and tail and handcraft a little heart. She then builds a wool sculpture of the horse around the heart. She fashions what she calls Keepsake Critters for dog and cat owners as well, working from photographs of the pet to create a “heart-felt” memento for the owner. In addition to her true-to-life custom sculptures of beloved pets, Peggy uses her imagination to create her Woofsong Woolies inspired by her love of animals and nature. You can see her whimsical creations at woofsong.com.

What’s Your Gait Through Life? I

n the race of life, it can be hard to keep a healthy pace to the finish line. Too fast can tire you out quickly; too slow and you could fall behind. Take this quiz to find your pace and get expert advice from Dawn Pendleton, licensed marriage and family therapist, and Nicola Foreman, licensed clinical social worker, on how to keep a steady stride.

1. Your boss hands you a new project with a two-week deadline. You react by… a. Dropping everything and starting on the project. b. Making a timeline for the project, working it in with your other duties. c.  Putting it off until the last minute — deadlines are more like suggested completion dates. 2. You run into a friend while grocery shopping. She stops to chat, and you…

44

a. Find other projects to take on. b. Go back over the work you’ve completed to check for accuracy. c. Slip under your desk for a quick nap. 4. Your favorite movie is coming on TV. You… a. DVR it. You are much too busy to watch a movie. b. Grab the popcorn and settle in on the couch. c.  Fall asleep before the movie begins — your energy level isn’t what it used to be. 5. When you finally get to relax for the night, it is… a. After 11pm — your day barely ends before the next begins. b. Around 9pm — getting sleep is important to you. c. Anytime — your whole day is about relaxation.

ILLUSTRATION BY MARIE DAVIS, DERBY ARCHIVE

a. Keep your sentences at a two-word maximum as you move toward the checkout. b. Quickly catch up on what’s new with her. c.  Talk so long, you’re forced to purchase melted ice cream.

3. It is a slow day at work, so you take the opportunity to…

Mostly A’s GALLOP Your fast-paced lifestyle has you at a full gallop all the way to the finish line. Though you may be great at multitasking and managing responsibilities, long-term bustling could cause harm instead of win races. “The busier we are, the harder it is to maintain self and family care,” says Dawn Pendleton. “It is also hard on our physical health with most having poor sleep and eating habits.” To keep from tiring out too early, Pendleton suggests scheduling two minutes within your day to close your eyes and focus on your breathing. Doing this a couple of times during the day can relax your body and create a smooth finish to your day. Mostly B’s CANTER You have a steady pace in your daily life with a well-organized schedule, but one stumble sends you rolling off track. Don’t let these moments interfere with your well-thought-out day. “Every moment is an opportunity for change,” says Nicola Foreman. “If you veer off track, there is always an opportunity to change things. Just remember to celebrate small victories and give yourself a break — no one is perfect.” Mostly C’s WALK Procrastination could be pulling the reins on your life and halting you from meeting daily goals and long-term achievements. “If you are a procrastinator, set deadlines for yourself,” Foreman says. “Start with small, short-term goals that are realistic and achievable. Instead of telling yourself you don’t want to do something, tell yourself you will do it and give yourself incentives for meeting your goals.” SOURCES: Nicola Foreman, LCSW, has her own private practice, 8401 Shelbyville Road, Suite 201, Louisville, 40222, 502.263.8414, nicolaforeman.com Dawn Pendleton, LMFT, Pendleton Counseling Collaborative, LLC, 107 Crescent Ave., Louisville, 40206, 502.377.1690, pendletoncounseling.com

— Terri Blincoe, project manager, Time Warner Cable

“Take a pair of ip- ops in your handbag.”

— Sheila Newton, owner, From The Vault Jewelers

“Look fabulous but be comfortable! Think about your SHOES. Wear a pair that you have worn numerous times and had a good experience in. If you purchase a new pair, break them in prior to Derby day.”

— Kenzie Kapp, Kenzie Kapp, LLC Creative Director

“Dress in layers so you’re prepared for anything. And don’t forget the ats! They’re your best friend at the end of the day after showing off your fabulous heels all day long.”

Don’t let the stress of nding parking on Derby Day overwhelm you. James Jones, guest services representative for Churchill Downs, and Laura Dailey, who works in marketing and business development for Yellow Cab, have some tips for navigating your way through the madness. TIP: You can park at Papa Johns Stadium if you don’t have a parking pass and use the shuttle service. Patrons pay $25 to park and pay another fee for the shuttle. However, Jones says most people will bypass the shuttle and walk to Churchill Downs since it is only four blocks away. TIP: Park at Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center for $15 and catch the shuttle for an additional fee.

TIP: Churchill Downs has partnered with The Galt House and The Brown Hotel to offer shuttle service for $15-$25. TIP: You can park in someone’s yard, but Jones advises against it unless you are friends with the person. TIP: Yellow Cab charges a at fee the whole day depending on your how far you are from Churchill Downs. “The city created a map for Yellow Cab that the drivers use to determine how much they need to charge. Rates start at $27 and increase based on where your pick-up is in Louisville,” says Dailey. TIP: Don’t let strangers take you to Churchill Downs. “There are people who try to do personal shuttles, but they are not legitimate. You must have certain credentials to be able to get to the designated parking areas. If you choose to this option, make sure you know where they are dropping you off,” Jones says. — Tiffany White

N

ikki Grizzle and husband Josh Grizzle look forward to attending the Unbridled Eve Gala every year. For the fourth year, Blessings in a Backpack is the fundraising event’s primary beneficiary. This year the gala will be held Derby Eve, May 1, at the Galt House. “It is a beautiful event,” Nikki says. “Last year 900 people attended. Derby is the time of year you are especially proud to be from Louisville and Kentucky. The gala really shines the spotlight on what Blessings in a Backpack does in providing food for elementary school children on free or reduced lunch programs to take home for weekends during the school year.” This will be Nikki’s fourth Unbridled Eve. Last year she rented a designer dress — a red, off-one-shoulder chiffon gown — from Rent the Runway (renttherunway.com). It’s a great deal, she says. “They sent two sizes of the dress — just to make sure it fit.” It might be a great option again since she just had a baby girl in March.

W

e all know that the Derby winner wears a garland of red roses. But what about a dress of roses worn on the Red Carpet at Churchill Downs? Such a gown has been the creation of Amy Streeter, owner of Susan’s Florist on Preston Highway in Louisville. Three years ago, at the invitation of Andre Wilson, president and CEO of Style Icon, Amy fashioned a full skirt of live, red roses to be worn in a fashion show at Churchill Downs. The next year, it was a black dress with a long train of roses, and last year she designed a black dress with a band of roses swirling from neckline to hemline. “Each dress is made of about 600 fresh roses,” Amy says. “Each rose is hand-wired to create the gown, making it quite heavy.” As of press time, this year’s design was still under wraps. For photos of Amy’s previous rose dresses, check out Susan Florist’s Facebook page at susansflorist.com.

112. Speaking of Arty Dresses Attend the KMAC Couture show, a wearable art runway show presented by the Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft. KMAC Couture features emerging and established regional artists, costumers, designers, and milliners in an extraordinary presentation of original couture pieces of wearable art and conceptual fashion designs. The proceeds from this event go to support the educational and exhibition programming of the Museum throughout the year. Contact: kmacmuseum.org 52

Make Your Own

Tissue Paper Fascinator Host a pre-party for your girlfriends to make your own inexpensive tissue party fascinators. • 8 sheets of tissue paper (any color or pattern) • headband

• crafting or oral wire • s tring or thread • hot glue gun • netting

• extra details ( ower for center, etc.) • scissors

A. Line up tissue paper so all 8 sheets are neatly stacked together in the color order you’d like. (If using extra large tissue sheets, cut them down to 12” long.)

B. Fold tissue paper in a fan-like manner. Pinch in the center with crafting wire. Cut the edge of each end of stacked tissue paper either at an angle or rounded out to resemble a softer petal-like shape.

C. Begin on one side and uff up tissue paper one sheet at a time. Continue on to the other side and then uff as desired for extra fullness. You can add extra detail once uffed. Here we added a burlap ower in the center for an extra touch.

D. Cut the desired amount of netting and pinch in the center. Secure all to the headband where you desire with either thread or crafting wire. Attach ower with hot glue gun or wire until secure on the headband.

Corn Cakes Topped with Barbecue By PAIGE RHODES MAKES ABOUT 24 INDIVIDUAL CORN CAKES

DERBY ARCHIVE

PHOTO: PAIGE RHODES

126

For the Barbecue: 2 lbs pork butt 1 cup beef broth 12 oz of good quality barbecue sauce Pour beef broth into slow cooker, and add pork butt. Cook on high heat for 6 hours, or until meat shreds easily. Remove meat, and shred with two forks. Preheat oven to 350°. Transfer the shredded pork to a Dutch oven and stir in barbecue sauce. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until heated through. Add more barbecue sauce if desired. 1 large egg 1 cup buttermilk 1 fresh jalapeño, seeded and minced very fine 1 cup coarsely grated Monterey Jack

In a bowl whisk together the cornmeal, the flour, the salt, the baking soda, the pepper, and the sugar. In another bowl whisk together 2 tablespoons of the butter, the egg, and the buttermilk, stir in the chili pepper and Monterey Jack. Stir in the cornmeal mixture, stirring until the batter is just combined. Heat a griddle over moderately high heat until it is hot, brush it lightly with additional melted butter. Working in batches, drop 1 heaping tablespoon of the batter onto the griddle. Spread the batter slightly to form cakes into an even circle that is about 2 inches in diameter. Cook the cakes for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until they are golden, transferring them as they are cooked to a heatproof platter, and keep them warm.

Last year, we created a Hot Brown Bar you could serve your guests. It’s another great idea for a party.

127

For the Corn Cakes: 1 cup stone-ground yellow cornmeal 1/2 cup all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon salt 3/4 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper 2 teaspoons sugar 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled

FROM HOT BROWN BUFFET: Pretzel croissant from Klaus Bakery (available at Anchorage Cafe, Beargrass Church and Bardstown Road Farmers’ Markets), Asiago and Caraway Rye Bread from Breadworks (3628 Brownsboro Road, 502.254.2885), Beaten biscuits, ham biscuit slices, Makers Mark Gourmet sauce, and Bourbon Smoked Pepper available at Taste of Kentucky. Sungold Tomato Jam, Apple Butter with Woodford Bourbon Jam, and Red Onion Rosemary Jam by Beth Fowle at Full Heart Farm (St Matthews, Bardstown Road, and other farmers markets). Silver horse platter, jockey serving knives, plate with spire knife, jockey towel, and hot brown plate available at Taste of Kentucky.

Top the corn cakes with a heaping tablespoon of pork barbecue and serve warm. If you have more barbecue than corn cakes, you could use it to make mini sandwiches with Hawaiian rolls.

Heat the water and the sugar over medium heat until the sugar dissolves. Add 1 bunch of mint leaves to the syrup and simmer for two to three minutes before discarding the mint. Reduce heat to low and allow to cool slightly. Slowly stir two packets of unflavored gelatin into 1 cup of bourbon. PHOTO: PAIGE RHODES

Combine with the mint simple syrup and stir over low heat for 3-5 minutes, until the gelatin is completely dissolved and has had time to thicken slightly.

“Chocolate Goo Cake (Espresso Gelato, Ganache and a touch of heaven, Weisenberger Grits) from Proof on Main. If you are visiting Kentucky, you have to indulge in Southern comfort food. These grits are pure decadence. And the Mint Julep from Proof on Main… mandatory Derby drink.”

Cheddar and Pecan Torte with raspberry jam top made by Terri Lynn’s Catering by Design is a great appetizer with crackers or bread at any party.

Put the chocolate and salt in the bowl of the standing mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. In a small saucepan, heat the bourbon with the sugar over moderate heat, stirring a few times, just until the sugar is dissolved, bringing it to a slight simmer but not allowing it to boil. Pour the warm bourbon mixture over the chocolate. Add the pieces of butter and the eggs and beat at moderate speed until the mixture is creamy and shiny.

136. Festival Fandom

s president of YPAL, Jean Lee sits as an ex-officio member on the board of the Kentucky Derby Festival. She is on the committee for Wine Fest, where attendees get to sample and enjoy great wines from Kentucky and Indiana vineyards. It takes place April 28 and 29 on the East Belvedere at Waterfront Park. “I will definitely be attending this event to insure that everyone’s wine glass is full.” Jean, 32, also volunteers her time to the PNC Tour de Lou which takes place on Sunday, April 26. This is the second year for the 20- and 35- mile bike event along the streets and parkways of Louisville. “I won’t be riding,” Jean says, “but I am recruiting groups of encouragers to be stationed at spots along the route to cheer the riders on.” Jean will compete in the Battle of the Bounce held April 29 from 11 am to 1 pm on the Waterfront Great Lawn. Proceeds benefit Christian Care Communities. She will be on one of the four-person teams from local companies and organizations that participate in this race through, around, up, and over giant inflatables. “There is a rock wall to climb, a hamster wheel-like ball to run in, and an obstacle course to overcome. Then, you have to cross the finish line riding an inflatable pony. It is all great fun!” TODAY’S WOMAN
