Monsoon Season starts

We went again last night. Got there a little late and had to sit through the closest thing to a monsoon that I've ever been in for a few minutes. Turned the track from a dry, fast track, into a mud pit. Normally they rake the dirt between races, after the rain they were using giant squeegees to squeze the water from the track. The condition listed was sloppy all night long after the monsoon came through. We did get to view an almost complete rainbow from our seats. Saw both ends from our vantage point. Even saw a faint double rainbow off one side. Wish I'd had a camera with me to photograph that. A few horses were scratched in later races after that for obvious reasons. I would've hated to have been out in that torrential downpour when it hit.

Another good night, otherwise, for myself. Results for myself and GF™ below the break.

Opening Day & First Friday of Horse Racing Season

We went on Opening Day with GF™'s mother and, as metioned before, sat in the single seats on the Mezzanine Level, as they call it. It's the 2nd level.

Don't remember how I did off-hand, but I think we had a good day of it.

They have new fancy betting machines there which can take any new version of currency. Much sleeker than their older machines, which I think they are phasing out.
