'Tis the season for lots of Christmas Parties. This week's party was for Flying Monkeys and was held at Georgian Downs. Even though Jay's family is involved in the Standardbred Industry and I've seen his uncles and cousins training horses when we visit his hometown, I've never actually been to a horse race before! Usually I avoid casinos because I hate gambling (I'd rather throw away my money on shoes and purses) and to be honest I find slot machines and table games incredibly boring.
Watching the races was completely different!
From the loft the entire party had a view of both the race track and the wide screen tv. Instead of being a solitary activity like most casino games are, it was a group one. People were jokingly getting competitive, placing bets together, and cheered when there was a surprise win. Jay explained to our table what all the stats in the program meant, but I used the highly scientific method of picking a horse based on it's name (Red Zepplin anyone?). In the end my method proved to be more profitable than Jay's!
It was a fun night and I was incredibly comfortable in my dress that resembled both a nightgown and bed sheet. The colour is one of my absolute favourites to wear. Pics taken at the end of the night in our questionable hotel room. Sometimes using an online site to book a room doesn't quite turn out!
