Emerald Downs “Bus Cruise” was Off and Running this past Sunday for a Day at the Races–Horse Races that is.

Mimosas & Bloody Marys kept coming from volunteer bartender Terry Tavelli while Rebecca Hall served up fresh fruit, muffins, & mini-quiches. Heather Ouillette led the group in fun games with prizes.
Then it was time to get serious as we read the latest edition of the “Daily Racing Form” newspaper for tips–thanks to Jack and Linda Levine.

The ladies were regaled in beautiful hats while the men sported fedoras–photos to be posted on the website. The BYC entourage had their own box seats with a direct sight to the finish line. Commodore Jody led us down to the paddock to size up the ponies before we placed our bets. More than a few BYCers took home winnings.

The party continued on the ride home with cocktails, box snacks, and lively conversations. Many thanks to Commodore Jody for initiating this–a sure bet–new BYC tradition.
