And down the stretch they come...

Last weekend Jeff and I attended his school Junior Dinner that was held at Golden Gate Fields in Berekley, (aka: the horse races!) It was truly a one of a kind date! We had the best view of the whole field from the Directors Room where we got an all you can eat buffet of the most delicious food. As you can see here we won the award for best dressed couple! :)
"The Trumpet Guy" played before each race. 
And they're off! We weren't expecting the horses to be so loud as they ran by, but my goodness! We were both amazed at how muscular these animals are. Incredible horses to say the least. 
The view from the Directors Room where we spent most of our time.
One of the races was dedicated to Jeff's class. Here, a few of them got a photo with the Jockey who won that race. Having never been to something like this before we weren't quite sure what to expect, especially since we don't roll with the gambling crowd. WIth that said, we had a great time visiting with classmates, mingling with Jeff's professors, enjoying a very unique afternoon with great food and entertainment, and no we didn't bet on any races!

Sounds so fun! I am just wondering, is Jeff really like double the size of that jockey? I mean I heard they were small, but wow! :)
