Horse Racing High

Visions of mint juleps and big hats had me excited for my first trip to the racetrack at Lone Star Park, just west of Dallas. While dresses and hats are optional, the excitement was present and contagious. Grab the book that lists the horses in each race and have someone walk you through how it works. Placing a bet (I prefer the $3 ones) that actually wins makes for a nice adrenaline rush. Bring some cash (bets can't be made on credit cards), order a cocktail, and stroll through the horse stalls to choose your winner before the races.
