Missoula, MT, Aug 14, 2010

This was another meet that fell under the Montana Downs umbrella of the Spector organization. In fact they got this meet brought back from the dead, as it had not run for at least a couple years prior to this. So that was good.

The place was jammed. 90% of the people on the fair grounds seemed to be there for horse racing. It was hard to get a bet in edgewise, and indeed many people got shut out every race. Even me once. Much grumbling about not enough tellers, both during the day and afterwards from the horsemen and other participants.

But I had a good time. Plus a great fair with great fair chow right out back!
