We took a picnic and a football and waited for the horses to come thundering by.
Luckily for us the next race was starting from where we were walking to so we hung about to see the horses going in the stalls and setting off. Little man had a snack while we were waiting.
The grandstand was packed
I don't know if you can see it from this picture but this particular horse had a union jack shaved into it's hind quarters.
