A couple weeks ago, I attended the Portland Mile Race Day at Portland Meadows Race Track in Oregon. Aside from the fog, it was a great day!
Of course none of ever win anything big, but that's not why we go.
It's the horses, of course! Watch them come in the paddock, read the stats, and in the end you just pick the prettiest one or the one with the coolest name!
And then standing near the finish line as the crowd cheers on their favorite, listening the the pounding hooves as they strive for the finish line. Makes me want to go buy a race horse, or two!
February 10th will be the last live racing day this season, so if you want to experience the thrill, you better go this week!
