Off to the Races!

A new experience for all of us...
Horse Racing!

We have a friend that trains race horses. 
This is his horse, Valley Girl
(you can only see her hiney)

She had won all of her races to make it to this one 
*The Finals*
Go Valley Girl!!
We were there to cheer her on.
However, she got excited in the gate and fell over. Got back up and the gates were opened. She had lost concentration and placed 8th.
Wow! Those races are amazing up close.

Our friend had connections and got us down to the gates. The place where all the action takes place before the race begins. We got to see them load into the gates and then take off like a speeding bullet.

I don't think this guy knew he was riding "my horse".
He was so strikingly beautiful. (the horse)
(not really my horse but I would like to have him)
hint hint, dude!

Our kids have horse fever. Gaela came up to me the other day and said "it's killing me not to be riding a horse!" She hasn't been on a horse since we visited you :-/
