After we took in the exhibits and the various animal barns, we went over to the main attraction at the fair, the horse and mule racing. Here’s a tip for you, don’t bet on a horse ridden by a jockey who wears a pink shirt. I ended up losing $10 for the day but I looked at it as fairly cheap entertainment. Lowell Jr. had never been to a horse race before and got off to an auspicious start. His first pick got about 30 yards out of the gate and then stopped. Didn’t have an accident or anything, it just appeared to quit. His next pick finished the race — in last place. The next race that we bet on was the only race we one, only he bet $7 and I only bet $2. So he made back his $20 he started with plus he made a buck. I got back $6 on my $2 bet which meant I was still in the hole, so I bet it all on the last race. Put it on a long shot and after the race was over I understood why he was a long shot. Oh well, it was all in good fun.
