And They're Off!
The only sorta bad part of the day was that for the first time in, well, I can't even remember how long, it was POURING rain in Arizona today. We had roads closed everywhere, festivals cancelled right and left, its been insane, but the race goes on. Evidently the horses actually run better when its a bit sloppy out there. Something about their feet gripping better I guess.
At one point there was a race dedicated to the Firm that the party was thrown by so we got to go down to the track to get our picture with the winning horse. Sadly, it was POURING rain so badly that we couldn't go out on the track. In fact, the rain was so bad that the Number 8's horse lost its rider. He still came in second! It was all very exciting.
Pictures coming your way!
