Well, we went to a few tracks in 2006, but I'll be damned if I ever wrote about any of them.

But I did get a few pictures, at least of some of them.

This episode: Turf Paradise ~ Rillito Park ~ Hawthorne ~ Lone Star ~ Arlington ~ Great Falls ~ Yellowstone Downs

And I'll be the first to say it, so you don't have to ... what was I thinkin' taking these dumb pictures? Answer: No idea.

 

January: Went to Arizona. Visited TuP and Rillito. Got pix of Rillito only. And this is it.

 

All Spring: Visited Hawthorne, captured nonsense. Though there IS a bonus photo of local legend Suntan Tommy. 


Plus a bonus: Ostrich racing!

 

May 2016: Went all the way to Texas, visited Lone Star. Got two dumb pix at the track, and a scary thunderstorm on the freeway from Dallas back to Austin. (It WAS an excuse to pull off and wait it out ... in a tavern.) Money well spent. There's bang for your McChump tour bux.

 

Summer: Arlington. Same deal: Nonsense. Except the wilted roses. And the lady with the cool outfit. And the pettin' zoo.

 

July: Montana State Fair/Great Falls. Real nice work, chump.


But wait, I did get you this video of the horse-swappin' phase of an Indian Relay race.

 

August, early: Went to Yellowstone Downs; didn't even bother to unlimber the camera.
