It was a cool and windy day in Shakopee with the flags flying horizontally. It was Opening Day at Canterbury Downs, coinciding with the Kentucky Derby. I enjoyed the mix of Southern Belle attire and beaded, embridered blue jeans and Harley paraphenalia.
I bet on two races. I won on one, Race #8 with "Asian Wind" taking first. I ended up slightly in the black. My wife bet on Curlin in the kentucky Derby to "show". He took 2nd, for another windfall gain.
Our winnings paid for our refreshments and a pizza later that evening.
