Now... I'm still probably not even what you would call "proficient" at horse racing, but I think I could make decent picks. Also, and maybe more importantly, I know how to make a wager. I had no idea going in that I'd be learning so much jargon in one day.
|Our first bet. John placed this one... it didn't win anything.|
|Horse #2 taking the Win!|
|Our first winning bet: Race 2, $2, Across the Board, Horse #2 - #2 got the Win, so this was $7.90 payout on our $6 bet.|

|The starting gate. Sometimes they started far away, so I liked when they were close to us.|
All in All, a pretty fun day. It takes a while, and you definately need good company to chat with between races. But, I wouldn't mind going back some time.
