Our view at Hollywood Park. It’s opening night, but the track is dead. The Turf club is quiet, the patrons are casually dressed, apparently it’s just not the same. However, it’s my first race and I’m excited to see all the action without the chaos. Mike says racing is riddled with drama. Whatever the case may be, I’m learning the basics, checking out horses, and most importantly, learning how to bet. We’re having fun. Mike just picked “Father Grumpy” for the win, and guess what he was right. Mike grew up in racing so he knows what he’s talking about. I love learning new things, and as Mike taught me pool in Mexico, I know I’ll be an ace at this in no time. Thanks Mike!
