This weekend I went to Santa Anita Park with some girlfriends – my first time going to a horse race as an adult! It was a blast.
I did some homework beforehand so I could play the ponies and not look like an idiot. The best web guide on how to bet on horse races was from Art of Manliness blog. I bet on 4 races, and won a payout on 1 of them using a highly sophisticated betting method of best horse’s name + pretty jockey silks + horse’s face expression, LOL.

Its nice to feel a little more connected to my horse’s past career. Though looking at those TINY jockey saddles makes me wonder why Hemie had a hard time being ridden bareback…
