Week 3 Day 1-Sights @ the Track

Week 3 is underway at the Spa. Despite rain in the morning the sun came out when racing began. 16,651 came out on a Wednesday to watch 6 maiden races and Sackatoga Stable/Tagg trained Doc n Roll win the feature race. The crowd today was pretty good and everyone seemed eager to come out and not use an umbrella. The cost of Gas around here has dropped about 25 cents in the last week and the mood seems much more upbeat around the track. Without an umbrella in my hand, I was able to walk around , take in the sights and snap some photos.

The morning begins as usual with rain showers, washing out the tours

Sunny with Dark Clouds to the North-typical of weather so far this meet

But the rain holds off as the sun shines as Vicarious wins the 3rd
