Latitude 17N

Sunday, March 27, 2005

Well, we went to the horse races today. It was a lot of fun. I wish we had brought some money with us. I wasn't thinking about betting when I took my money. Uncle Jeremy would have been proud of Julian because he picked all the winners. We stayed for three races and all three of his picks won. The first was a photo finish (not my photo because it didn't come out). The pictures I posted here are from the third race. Isla was the winner shown here in a white blouse with different colored polka dots with Evening After in 2nd and Mate O Mine in the 3rd spot. The races started pretty much on time which is unusual for anything here in the Caribbean. The first one started at 3:30. The horses come out into the ring and the jockeys try to keep them in line until it's time to line up. Then they go over near the starting point and buck around and walk in circles until it's time and then they all just start running. They run around the wrong way which is weird. It was a lot of fun. It was packed. We left after the third race. There were two races left at that point and the cars were still piling in. Quite the event for Nevis. An Easter Horse Race. Funny!  Posted by Hello
