Dispatches From a Day at the Races – The Triangle Blog.

Don’t miss this lovely write-up of an afternoon at Saratoga!

I especially love the moments spent with the placing judges – a corner of the racetrack I’ve never been:

They have their own language: “Three, four, eight, two. Two and eight on the bottom. Eight and two on the bottom. One in the red coat is coming, go! Three, eight, one, four. Good, that’s all. He’s getting wobbles but he’ll make it. Three, one, eight, and a photo finish.”

That’s all you’ll get from me! Go and read it!
