Horses go faster than Yak’s.  

LaCroix took Eric and I on a betting Frenzy at  the Emerald Downs race course.   It’s  much cheaper and more casual than Goodwood but easily as enjoyable.    They took my wild $2.00 bets with the minimum of smirking.   Highlights included

  • the little people (Jockey’s)
  • well toned bottoms (on the horses)
  • space (seating, padock views, course-side views)
  • the imposing grandstand.  
  • beer could be taken anywhere in the arena
  • LaCroix  had her age checked before they would sell her beer


  • bets.   Not winning anything with a strategy of picking horses based on their names.
  • cash-only entry fee.   Huh?   why’s that.
  • camera ineptness.   I now know that I need to work out how to take photographs in quick succession because by the time I’d taken the first photograph of the horses coming out of the chute they were half way around the track!

Woooooosh!  see the dirt fly
