Del Mar, a day at the races

The 75th anual horserace season is officially open. The Brits have Ascot and we have Del Mar!
I was there for the opening day with a few friends, and I have to admit that it's a bit bizarre — to say the least — to see all those people making an effort to dress fancy (the ladies with very elaborated hats) and failing completely :)
It was fun though. I've bet on 4 races — $10 on each race, split into two horses — and made $110. Net income for the day $70. Not too bad for a rookie!

Pedro, Nuno and me... hats are mandatory!
