We went to the horse races at Santa Anita yesterday and the weather turned out to be beautiful after a cloudy morning. We arrived in time to bet on the first race, I place 2 $5 bets to win. My horse's came in 1st and 2nd. Won $35 on $10 bet. Did a Exacta/boxed on the 2nd race and 2 of my horse's came in 1st and 2nd. Won $24.50 on $12 bet. 3rd race one of my horse's was scratched just b/4 getting loaded into the starting gate. Appeared to have a slight limp, got 3/4 of my bet back. 4th race bet $6 Exacta/boxed won $64.20. 5th race same bet and won $22.50, missed on the 6th but my horse's came in 1st & 3rd. Won again on the 7th with a $12 Exacta/boxed and won $89.50. The 9th race my horse's came in 1st, 3rd & 4th, and the 10th I had 2nd and 4 place finishes. Even when I didn't win I still picked good horse's who placed well.
We took Frank and his girlfriend Renee with us. I made two types of brownies to bring along. It s a pot luck, so there is all sorts of food. The last two years I was so careful because of watching everything I ate. Because I have been injured since Nov. and gained weight some back, not good but oh well. I am not following the plan at the moment so I did have some of the goodies that I would normally walk away from. In a small way it was nice not have to worry about what went into my mouth.
Took Phred out for a walk earlier but it started to rain, again. Now NASCAR is on hold until the weather improves. My cousin Paul is over in Fontana and sent me a FB picture he took that said "Wish you were here". I really wanted to go but glad now I didn't go. It is most likely pretty cool out that way. It suppose to rain pretty hard and not let up until tomorrow. I have another friend who lives north of the Los Angeles in Simi Valley and he said it is pouring right now. I think they are going to call the race cause it just starting to pour here too.
