Last Friday Ashley and I were invited by America’s Best Racing to attend opening day of the horse races at Santa Anita Park. Santa Anita Park is a thoroughbred racetrack in Arcadia, California. I had never watched horse racing before and couldn’t wait!
We met the America’s Best Racing reps at the Club House door and they handed us our VIP passes, gave us a quick tour of the grounds, and showed us to our club seats!
The racetrack is absolutely beautiful.
Since neither of us had placed a bet before, we were in dire need of instruction.
I gave up trying to understand how it worked and sat back with a glass of champagne to enjoy the view…
…and a big ol’ bowl of pasta.
We eventually made our way inside to place our bets.
Ashley found her perfect horse immediately!
When it was time for the race to begin, the horses and their riders came out to the track to warm up.
Then lined up at the starting gate…
We eventually made our way to the stables to watch the horses get ready.
We couldn’t have asked for a better day. America’s Best Racing took fantastic care of us and made us feel so special!
