Update 4452: The track opened at 8 AM this morning. I am guessing they must have worked on it all night last night. We had five sets, so a pretty straightforward morning in the chillier weather. It was a little below freezing but not too bad. All my horses galloped nicely. I did see a couple of people getting run off with, or close to it anyway! Finishing up we also cleaned a lot of the racing equipment. We have paddock schoolers today and racing begins tomorrow, weather permitting of course.
