A day outside the studio
It was my boyfriend’s birthday on June 7th so I put my work away and took a day off. This is what i look like when i’m not working….sort of. Not always drinking and gambling though.
We went to the horse track not far from Down Town Vancouver, where we live, and spent the day drinking, betting on horses and chilling. It was a lot of fun, although the day was rather cold for June. That’s summer time in Vancouver for you.
In the very first race a horse went down head over hoofs along with the jockey who also got kicked in the head by the oncoming horse’s foot. He crawled off the track and collapsed on the grass face down. The horse stayed down too and within seconds the track was swarming with attendants and an ambulance. They got the horse up and it didn’t appear that it sustained serious injuries to every one’s relief, but the jockey was taken away in the ambulance. He was conscious though and waived to the crowd.
We were lucky in the first three races with our horses coming in first and second, but then we lost our winnings on the other 6. Which was fun anyway. The end.
