The Weekend Roundup - P

This week's prompts: Starts with P, Favorite, and Pretty. I'm drawing all my pics from a visit to Remington PARK in Oklahoma City. Hubby's stepson is a trainer so we got a tour of the backside of the track.

Starts with P: PADDOCK starts with P. This is the area where the horses are saddled before a race.

Favorite: I absolutely love gray horses and always root for them during a race. This horse was my favorite of the night. He gave me my big win of the night. A $2.00 ticket to show. He came in 3rd, so I won a whopping $4.80. Yes, I am a big time better. I took $12.00 to the betting window throughout the night. Subtracting my winnings, I ended the night with a deficit of $7.20. Not bad for all the fun that $7.20 gave me.

Pretty: This PRETTY horse is named Speedy Fella. He wasn't scheduled to race, so missed seeing him in action. I hate to call a male horse PRETTY, but he sure is.

Just Because: PRE race PREPARATION in the PADDOCK. This is one of the horses stepson trained. He is PREPARING to race. He had a rough start and was last for a while because of it, but ended up 3rd. If only that other horse hadn't been in his way he probably would have won. 

This is him with the jockey walking to the gate. PRETTY IN PINK.

And Finally: You can't have horse races without jockeys and this one is a treasure at Remington PARK. His name is PAT Steinberg.
