A first for racing in British Columbia

This past weekend I was lucky enough to participate in a first for BC racing. 3 different breeds racing in one afternoon, on the same track in Osoyoos.

Quarter horses, Thoroughbreds and Standardbreds all participated. The track was a little deep for the STBD's, but they were able to pack it down in the time between races. Only the QH's and TB's were racing for purses and the STBD's were there for exhibition races.

The only downfall was the cactus bushes dropping thorns everywhere, they popped quite a few of the race bike tires.

Can't wait to go back next year!

P.S. my pony is the one in blue and pink with the awesome dinosaur mane :) He ended up finishing 3rd with a driver who had never raced before, pretty good if you ask me.

There are also ones in Kamloops and Vernon, but the grandstand in Vernon just burnt to the ground. I don't think they will rebuild.
