And They're Off ...

March 20, 2016
We spent this Sunday ... going for a hike around the area ...
along the path of the canals for the flood water ...
The flowers and cacti were beautiful ...
I was amazed by the tall cactus with all the holes ...
and watching the birds flying in and out ...

We were so excited when we found out that we were going to go to ...
The Turf Paradise Thoroughbred Horse Racetrack ...
This was the first time for us experience this special event ...
We had help from Terry ... and the rest of the gang giving us tips on betting ...
It was an amazing place ... nice and cool being inside ...
we also enjoyed the beverages and a lovely lunch while watching the races ...
It was so much fun ... !!!

We had gotten an invitation from the owner of the #2 Horse ...
to visit the winners circle to meet the trainer and the jockey ...
It was thrilling to watch ...
the trainer had raised this horse ...
We were given insight as to which horse we should bet on ...
#2 & #3 horses were sure to place ...
All of us placed different bets on these horses ...
and we were all fortunate to have won a bit on this race ...
with #2 horse coming in third ...
It was so exciting watching this race ...
We had an awesome time watching all eight races ... !!!
