A Day At The Races

Yes, I do know that's a title of a Marx Brother's film. Started the day with a coffee and a blueberry scone with jam in Deans deli Belfast.
Coach picked us up and off we went to the centre of excellence of the Irish horse racing fraternity, Down Royal Racecourse. The weather was awful. Into the champagne tent to settle for the day. It wasn't too long before the bubbly and the smoked salmon arrived and everyone got into the race day mode. Had a few small bets and I have to say I won enough to get another bottle of bubbly for our table. Brill day, but it was cold and wet ...... disappointed though I'd didn't win the days best dressed man, but then again, perhaps my Tesco suit doesn't get onto the fashion police radar!
