Slamarama races at Keeneland

Continuing with all things horses, the kids and I went to Keeneland to see our friend Charlie Pigg's horse, Slamarama, race. Charlie took us into the paddock to see his trainer's horse and Hayes was over the top happy!
I mean, she just would not stop smiling. Who knew standing on a green patch of grass at a racetrack could make a girl so happy?
Here's Charlie with his trainer, Dallas Stewart:
And here are my babies in the stands at Keeneland:
Hayes made a narrative of her entire visit on her video camera:
Here is Slamarama in the paddock:
And getting saddled by trainer Todd Pletcher:
And going to the track with Rosie Napravnik aboard. Rosie is one of the best jockeys in the country at present.
Slamarama was in a good position during most of the race then another horse bolted, causing a chain reaction that could've gone disastrously. Slamarama ended up finishing far back and we all felt sad for Charlie. Had Slam won, he would've automatically been entered in November's Breeder's Cup. Sigh, that's horse racing for you.
