Derby Day

November 1st, 2014 0 comments

The greatest day of racing on earth. But the forecast is for Armageddon with rain, showers and hail. I decide to leave my lost and found hat at home in case the wind decides to blow it back to Frankston.

It’s black and white day for ladies. Even the young lasses stick to the dress code of their mothers! There’s a freezing cold wind but 90,244 juiced-up punters don’t seem to mind.

Two bets for two collects. Happy Trails looked absolutely perfect before the Mackinnon and Bondeiger was easily the most relaxed horse in the Derby.
