ponies

Spent the evening at the hippodrome last night. It's Quarterhorse racing season. Ninsi had some tickets for work for one of the upper lounge decks, so we were up there. They have a little tv at each table and there's a dude walking around to take bets for you so you never have to get up.

I think it is more fun on the lower levels. But that may just be because there were not a lot of people there last night. It was fairly chilly, which I suspect kept people home.

I learned that I dont like quarterhorse racing nearly as much as the thoroughbred racing though. The races last night were too quick. Mostly just over 300 yards. That doesn't give a lot of time for the horses to really put together a run. A lot of the time it was just a matter of which horse came out of the gate the best. So it was hard for me to pick them. The only race I actually one anything on was the one race that was a little longer.

Ill stick to thoroughbreds from now on, I think.
