Twilight Racing


Yesterday evening myself and 2 other girls from work headed to a Twilight Race Meeting in Limerick Racecourse... talk about hilarious!!! None of us had a clue what we were doing and hadn't a clue how to read "the form" either but sure that didn't stop us from betting big money (€2 to place or each way ).
We picked our horses by their horsey names... we quickly scanned the list in each race to see something that would pop out or mean something no matter how obscure. I was very dissapointed, any of the horses I picked didn't place very well, whereas the 2 girls were picking winners each time... So by the 5th race I got very excited when I saw the name Crafty Eyed. I thought the gods were smiling down on me or giving me a sign that this was going to be my winner!!! ..... well all I can say is that Crafty Eyed is still running (@#%*^%)
After the races the Hot House Flowers played in the pavillion, Liam and the boys were soooooo cool, giving it loads! Mind you so was Ailis and I, we danced most of the evening with poor Ann minding our bags (she didn't want to be seen anywhere near us). I didn't realise how loud the music was (or how old I was) until we left the pavillion and I kept asking the girls "am I shouting?" the two girls kept repling "what?" LOL!
Anyways, we had a blast and I would recommmend it to anyone!!! The next one is on the 16th June and Jack L is playing after the races (coooool!). Check out Limerick Races for more info.
Ciao and have a lovely weekend!

Love them flowers....my first ever CD...have never seen them live, only Liam (although that's alright too!) Picking by names and colours is the best way.....I've made a few pound that way in the past (I have also lost quite a few I suppose!).
