Where the turf meets the surf

Approximately 15 years ago, I worked at the Del Mar Racetrack in one of their "fancy" restaurants. It was a perfect end-of-the-summer job. I got to brush up on my Espanol, climb several flights of stairs multiple times a day, and sometimes go to the beach before/after work. Since my last day of work all those years ago, I haven't been back. Until this last weekend! A friend of mine gave us a couple of tickets (her dad trains horses) and we took the gang for the afternoon. The boys got to bet on a couple races and came in 1st and 2nd (... not too shabby) in one of them. We met up with my friend and her family and the boys got to go meet he jockey and we were able to see the horses up close. It was definitely a learning experience for all of us, but I would definitely go again. It was fun and exciting and something new and different.
