There were 14 races, which made for a very long day in the saddle! Thankfully, much of what we do is standing around. LOL! We bring down the post parade (we trot down), stand off to the side of the track while the race goes, then we bring the winner back to the winner's circle. Then we stand at the fence by the apron and chat up the crowd! The horses love the attention from everyone. Once the next race is coming down the chute from the paddock, we go up and bring them down again. It is a lot of fun watching the horses race, seeing old friends, and meeting new ones!
|Dreamy is just chillin' and watchin' a race...nbd. She is so good at the track!|
|McKeever (left) and Dreamy. Can you tell which of our two horses was more competitive back in the day? LOL!|

|We switched horses! I am on McKeever, who appears to be asleep!|
|And Shelly on Dreamy. My mare looks so impressed! LOL! Shelly is on her phone....big surprise! ;-D|

We had so much fun, as usual! I love being asked to marshal! Thanks to Diann P., Susan H., and all the horsemen for a great day! :-)
