The Iron Horse

We're gearing up for the Iron Horse in 5 minutes. The 9-5 favorite is Calm and Collected, my choice in this one followed very closely at 2-1 by Mr. Meso. So far everyone has behaved themselves.

The crowd has really swelled up nicely in the last hour with long lines at the windows and a large number of fans still streaming in as we get closer to the start of race 3. The crowd is a great mix of young and old and the playground is full with kids. Things are heating up a bit weather wise as the clouds are starting to show some weakness, but it is still a gorgeous day here in Shakopee.

One minute to post and only a few dollars - literally - seperate C&C and Mr. Meso. It'll be interesting to see what happens with the speed in here.
