A few of us went to the racetracks at Belmont Park on Sunday, dressed in our finest. It was a sunny but crisp fall day with a biting wind. The beautiful fall colors and long shadows of the racetrack really made it feel like autumn...
Ray arranged for us to get private tours of the padock and entry into the clubhouse, but the real fun was in the bleachers with all the other betters. Of course, none of us really had any idea what we were doing at first, so we each picked up a copy of the program and studied it intensely, placing our bets for each race. I just am not a gambler though.
But I liked looking at the pretty horses and little jockeys and their colorful jerseys.
