night at the racetrack

A friend invited a bunch of us to go to Bay Meadows with her tonight, because there was a special: $1 admission, $1 beer, $1 hot dogs, and $1 minimum bets. Plus, Tainted Love, one of my favorite 80's cover bands, was playing between races.

In the end, I spent $7, ate a hot dog, was entertained for three hours, and learned a lot about betting on horses. Now I know what it means to "win, place, or show", what a "quinella" is versus an "exacta", and how the odds are read off of the scoreboard.

Here are a few somewhat blurry photos (horses are fast!):
