Disclosure: I was invited to an event at Santa Anita Park along with a select group of bloggers – all opinions are my own.
On a beautiful Friday in September, I ventured out to Arcadia. For those of you who read my blog, you’ll know that I had been out to Santa Anita Park earlier this summer for a food festival. However this was going to be my first time at the races! America’s Best Racing had invited me to be a part of the opening day festivities. America’s Best Racing is dedicated to bringing the sport of Thoroughbred racing to a younger generation of fans.
After we went through the club house entrance, our group was given a tour of the grounds.
After the tour, we made our way to our box seats. Check out the view from my seat!
I was given a brief tutorial on horse betting, but to be honest with you, I just went with the horse that had a pretty name. For the first race, I bet on Georgia, who had pretty good odds. Well wouldn’t you know, my horse came in first place!
I watched a couple more races & then my time at Santa Anita Park came to an end.
It was a fun-filled afternoon of horses, food & drinks! If you’d like to visit Santa Anita Park, click here for more information.
