I visit Belmont Park every summer and I always have a great time!
For one thing, these jockeys are really intense. Just check out this guy’s expression, he’s really stressing.
And this jockey, look at that body language. Such focus…amazing!
This jockey didn’t too well in the last race…so sad.
I love to scope out the horses in the paddock – this filly caught my eye – Canadian Ballet. I love Canada and the ballet! She’s the one for me, lucky 7.
Hello Ma’am, $10 on Number 7 to Win please!
As you might have suspected, your girl is a very big spender. ;-)
And they’re off!!
Canadian Ballet is in a dead heat! And the happy ending…she won! And I’m $34 richer!
A day at the races with my good friends, the beautiful athletic horses, many lovely terminologies (quinella, exacta, trifecta – oh my) and all manner of racetrack characters to scream and cheer along with us – a perfect summer’s day. :-)
