Pawn shops! You can always tell you're getting close to Oaklawn.
There it is, Oaklawn! This clubhouse end down here is now casino.
Friday. A quiet day. The littlest handicapper studies the form.
Nice view of Hot Springs from up top the hill.
Walking to the Derby yields all sorts of discoveries.
This one just struck our fancy.
I always wanted to stay here. Never got up the courage.
Nice infield crowd.
Eventual place horse Flower Alley getting saddled up.
And there's your soon to be winner Afleet Alex. The light's just crap this time of day.
And there they go, those little dots!
So the next day as we were headed south what should we find but Bil Clinton's boyhood home. Hope, Arkansas,
