In all honesty - the race was really boring. They took off and then we couldn't even really see them for a while. Then they came back around and crossed the finish...donezo until the next race....20 minutes later. I suppose if I was a gambling woman I wouldn't mind the 20 minute wait because it would give me time to place my bet, but I don't gamble. We took pictures in the meantime...

One girl in our group decided to give the whole experience a try. But she didn't want to go in blindly. She talked up strangers to find out what things were. Within two races she was talking like she came to the races every week. We tried to tell her that she may have a problem, but she said she could quit at any time and since people usually mean it when they say that ....we let it go.
She did win $2.50 and we did document it as much as we could on camera.
