First Final Prelude

Before we knew it we were up to Race 5 - the first of two finals on the card. The Seelite Windows & Doors InterDominion Trotting Final was worth $200,000 to the winner. It was preceeded with some ceremony, led off by local Kindguard Cavalry. They look real friendly, don't they?

A local cheerleading club then provided an escort to each horse as it entered the arena. Lined up, quite impressive.

There was the smell of finals in the evening air and the crowd, which had been steadily growing all the while, were beginning to get quite involved. No doubt there was some big money floating around by now - but we kept up our barrage of $1 bets.
