Day at the Races!

Snowbound Marquita into the home stretch!
It was a perfect day to go to the Races!  Sunshine, mid-70's, blue skies, those fluffy white clouds I love - & a light breeze!  Butch & I took Dean up on his offer to enjoy an afternoon at the track.  He had two horses running in the 8th race.  Marquita led all the way to the homestretch, when she faded & took second.   No complaints!
So much fun watching such beautiful, fit animals do what they love to do!  Run!
Dean's horse heads to the track!
The last race of the day was the most thrilling.  With a big dark bay colt fighting every inch of the way to win!  He had his neck stretched out - ears pinned back & that I'm going to win it No Matter What look as he crossed the wire - first by a nose!  Very impressive performance by a 2-year old!
The Winner!
We finished up the day with Greek style pizza & salad!
