"Quickest way is to buy a ticket."
"We don't have the money for that."
"You don't have three bucks for a grandstand? You don't have three bucks, I ought to lock you up as vagrants."
"Thank you very much," Larry said. "We'll be sure to recommend you for a Chamber of Commerce award." Larry had a terrible way of getting nasty with people when he was completely in the wrong. Once he got caught going over the fence at a track, and when they took him to the security office he got all red in the face and started screaming about how he had snuck into 23 different race tracks in the United States and never had he been treated this way and threatened to call a lawyer and they wound up apologizing and letting him into the clubhouse.
We walked away from the gate. It was about 4 a.m. now, cool and dry. For the third time we approached the stable entrance.
"Let's try it," Larry said.
There was a locked gate and an old man to guard it. He was private security, not a cop.
"Good morning," we smiled.
