Sunday Morning Romp at Mundy Park..this photo was taken mid walk..thank goodness there is a lake for a swim!! ..these photos were taken with Doug’s cell phone so the quality is not that great..you can’t see how the mud is imbedded into Tucker’s fur!!..ewwww
After the romp in the mud..breakfast on the sundeck..and the NORTHERN FLICKER sighting in the tree..housework and grocery shopping..we were off to the races..HORSE RACING THAT IS!!!!
This was our first time ever to Hastings Racecourse in Vancouver..the reason for spending the afternoon at the races??..Ron and Karen’s horse ‘Bobby’ was running in Race #7..”CLASSIC ALLEY KAT”..the new owners are Glenn Todd and Patrick Kinsella..Ron and Karen told us to see if we could find Mr. Todd, which we did..we said our ‘hellos’ and continued on with our ‘newbie excitement ‘ of gambling our small fortune on a few races.
Win..place or show....furlongs..wagers…claiming races..all ‘chinese’ to us??..like I said we are ‘newbies’…we placed our first wager of $10 on CRIMSON QUEEN…a Glenn Todd horse..we did the win, place or show..and we won $12!!!
We are on a ‘roll now”..next race was #6..our picks for this one were #5 PRIVATE INTENTION (another Glenn Todd horse)..and #8 ORCHID STORM (Ron and Karen’s neighbour’s horse..Pat and Wendell Clifton)
This race did not end well for our bets!!..we lost our $10…GEEZ!!!..and here we thought we were getting the ‘hang of it’
onto the flower pictures..and the Hat Girls..I think we missed the email on ‘dressing up’..we thought for a second we were at ‘Churchill Downs”
Hats ..suits and cigars seem to be the normal attire on a Sunday at Hastings Racecourse!!!
It was finally time for Race #7 and our favourite pick of the day…#4 CLASSIC ALLEY KAT..(AKA..BOBBY)..we bet it all on her to win..a whole $40!!!
CLASSIC ALLEY KAT WINS!!!..AND WE WON $108..NOT A BIG WIN BUT A WIN STILL THE SAME!!!
A great day!!!!
