I watched the
horse for another minute as Baeza turned him and headed back for the roses and
"I won the
time here and I won the Derby!"
I jumped backward
off the tower and landed in the middle of the picnic. "Hey, watch it,
"I won! I won
the Derby! I won the Derby!"
I ran toward the
cashiers, shouting it all the way.
We went up to the
box seats. After the Derby anyone can get in. I bet $5 on the eighth race and
won. We were buying beers as fast as we could drink them and crawling on our
hands and knees picking up souvenir glasses. Finally Larry fell asleep in a
seat. I also won the ninth race and left the track with $80.
