A Day at the Races - Santa Anita Park

Despite living quite close to Santa Anita Park, until a couple of months ago, I'd never been to the horse racetracks. I'm not much of a gambler.

In early October, my friend Chrissy reserved a club box at this beautiful racetrack in Arcadia, complete with a short lesson on reading the form and betting. On top of that, they were hosting a food truck festival in the infield.

A couple of us enjoyed the very warm ladies' day out and it was another great excuse to take photos of the gorgeous horses and park grounds.

    Love it! Good stuff Wasima. I'm reading Seabiscuit by Laura Hillenbrand now. Great book and I want to go the track again. ;o)

  2. Thank you! I loved my photo with Sea Biscuit statue from this same day. Am ready to go back minus the heat of last visit.
