Exotic Animal Races

Today at Louisiana Downs they had camel and ostrich races interspersed with horse racing. We missed the camel race, but I did get to see my first horse races. And my first ostrich race. 

It was super packed. We’ve been to the Labor Day Weiner Dog Races a couple of times, and it wasn’t anything close to this. 

Ostriches about to start

We didn’t bet, but I picked the winner on the first two, and my horse almost won the third. 

But now my four-day weekend comes to a close, and since my manager’s on vacation, it’ll be almost like having a real job for the next week and a half. He told me that the assistant manager and I are equally in charge while he’s gone.
