After a few times around the circle the jockeys came out and hopped on their horses. They really are super tiny people.
I'm not really sure how all of it works but he let me know we needed 11, 10 and 1 to win.Now it was time to sit around and wait. We found a spot outside and I took a few pictures. It's fun because you recognize people from all over the area. We ran into a friend of Joe's there with his sons and a few girls I remembered from high school. After a little while the horses were ready and it was time to race. The mile race took what seemed like a minute or two and then it was over. I was excited because 11 won, so we won, right!? Then Joe explained to me that we needed all three horses to place in order to win...lame.
