today was the first day of racing at the king island race club for the season, if you had asked me for a list of things we might do while we were on KI, i reckon going to the nags would have been number 874 on the list! i wasnt even aware there was a racecourse on KI!
anyway we had a glorious day for the event, i managed to pick the last horse in nearly every race, didnt make a winning bet all day, sal went into her pro-punter mode and lightened the pocket of the SP bookie, honest howie. her best win was backing the 9-1 roughie in the last race to put an extra $45 in her pocket, i think she was the only punter to back the horse on course!
we had a few beers, a very tasty steak sandwich and a good dose of sunburn from the summery weather before heading back to the blakes hut for a bbq and a few more ales.
we started with some fresh quail eggs for a starter then bbq’d the cray heads from yesterday for an appertiser and then put some marinated chicken thighs on and grilled them to go with the salads and roast veges the girls had cooked. so ends another magnificent day on king island with the blakes!
