We enjoyed a fun day at Portland Meadows. Thankfully the weather cooperated enough and we were able to go. They had just finished the Quarter Horse races when we got there, which was perfect timing in our minds. One of the QH races was 350 yards!
The first race we watched number 2 was my favorite horse while being saddled. His name is Oh Wilson and he won! :) Yah!
|#4 is a Seattle Slew Grandson (like Roz) named Inspector Shamus|
|#2 with the win!|
|Other horses getting ready to race. This one was a little excited|
|This photo was taken right down on the rail (while it was pouring down rain). We moved back inside for the next race. :)|
|This is a 13 year old gelding who has raced 108 times and won 160k+ How amazing is that? |
His name is Seattle Sailor Boy
|I think this was our favorite horse of the day, an 8 year old gelding named Platinum Katillac. Isn't he handsome?!|
|The birthday girl waiting for the race to start|
|Our 2 favorites at the end of the race- Seattle Sailor Boy didn't place very well.|
|Platinum Katillac got 2nd!|
On a sad note, I found Miss Pretty up for sale on dreamhorse. If anyone is looking for an athletic prospect and missed out on her the first time around I'd be happy to talk to you about her.
