It rained really hard on Friday night and Saturday morning here in California, the first time we've had any real rain in about eight months, so the track was muddy, but the air was crystal clear. There were clouds all day, but it kept the day cool and made for some lovely views of the San Gabriel Mountains, which sit behind the track.
We arrived fairly early which gave us time to walk around, get some mimosas, do some people watching (lots of hats), and place our bets. We bet on all twelve races, earning money on more than half of them. The final race, The Classic, was quite exciting even though California Chrome didn't win. I have a video of the horses rounding the far turn as they gallop to the finish line. I'll try and have it ready to share for tomorrow.
With that, here is a slew of photos from the day.
