Imageworks at Hollywood Park

Four of eight races I picked horse #4 to win. Four of eight races I came in 2nd. Boooooooo on 4. But… hotdogs and drinks are only a dollar on Friday nights so who really cares. Nothing quite like cheap eats and watching ponies run. The sport of kings? I think not. Tonight though, woo […]

Arrival in Liverpool
