Sunday, December 11, Calder Racecourse, Miami Gardens, Florida. A day like any other day. A monster crowd is on hand.
This spidery big glass grandstand caught my attention.
In fact it kinda creeped me out.
The paddock! Anything interesting that happened all day was happening out here.
Right by the paddock (and the Cuban Sandwich stand) is where all the Jamacians, and Haitaians, and Dominicans, and so on hung out. They were having a great time kidding each other, all day long. And as you may or may not be aware, no one knows more about horses and horse racing than these guys. So you could learn a thing ot two, chump.
A guy had a monkey on his head. A monkey with little pants. Why was it on his head? Why did it have little pants? Yeah I don't know. But when ya see a monkey ya gotta take a picture of that monkey, it's just the rules.
Out back they had this whole little entertainment extravaganza that had absolutely nothing to do with horse racing. For instance this crooner. He scared a little girl quite badly.
Whirlwind O' Cash! (Or something) With a giant taco in charge.
Pony rides! Woo hoo!
Petting zoo! With McChump #2's favorite, goats. Had to get the photo for him.
Adios Calder, it was an interesting day.
