It was a gorgeous Saturday afternoon at Keeneland and a turned out to be "Winning Cause" for me. S.M. (Vistage Bud) and his wife K.M. (also SVP Cincinnati alumni) joined Susan, Paul and I at the races. Almost a tradition now, we first had lunch a Joe Bolonga's and then it was off to the races.
This was the last Saturday for Keeneland, so the race was sold out and the participants were "decked out". It was a great day to people watch. The sun was out and luckily our grandstand seats were protected from the chill of the 50 degree windy weather.
Actually this was the first time I can remember ever leaving the race track "up" in earnings. This first time success was all because of "Winning Cause" in the ninth - $5 to Win cashed to $39. Susan's $2 to show on "General Election" cashing at $17.80 also helped recover the other six races of losses.
The real win was enjoying a day with friends -- as MasterCard would say "Priceless".
