Paddock area


Last night we stopped by the entrance gate to the Harness Racing to ask the amount of the entrance fee. We talked to the fellow for a moment and next thing you know he let us in gratis!

On Thursday night there are nine races. We came in during the fifth ( probably why it was free). It was a beautiful night- weather was a perfect temperature and there was a full moon.

The paddock area was very busy since they stage two races at a time. We watched a couple of races but truthfully harness racing is not as exciting as the flats. The horses are not as fast and the jockey doesn't seem as engaged since he is in a bent back position on the sulky.
