Here we go…
I switched purses so no pen; I ended up using my hipster red lipstick (thanks Daylon) to mark my bets. And you know my first stop was the beer cart for a delish Hef.
Josh raved about the garlic fries and had to have them. I begged for one, and “WHOA” they were as good or better than Safeco.
As I was wandering around I found this fantastic vehicle. I had to take a picture for Marissa, since she likes Shock Top. I personally think it tastes like armpits; serving beer out of a trunk tap is AMAZING!
I got hungry after sampling Josh’s garlic fries, so I ended up with a Philly Cheesesteak. It was alright. You can’t go wrong with a meaty cheesy sandwich. It was accompanied by an Alaskan Summer Ale.
Here’s the moveable post gate (I think that’s what it’s called.)
Marissa and I were going to get glitter tattoos, but we didn’t have enough time due to the massive line of kids. Don’t you think we should have seniority? Dang kids
Friend pose, minus our ridiculous, amazing hats.
I ended up winning on I think 4 races, which was super exciting to me. I was only betting $2 a pop, so no big dollars. Plus I knew how to pick the popular, winning horse, which meant the paybacks were slim pickings.
Here are my picks:
- Wild W B T
- Nitro Road
- He’s A Cruiser
- Malibu Rum (WINNER)
- Class Included (WINNER)
- Hollywood Harbor
- Taylor Said (WINNER)
- Kooky Saluki (WINNER)
- I Am Thor
