One of our most enjoyable rallys is the Santa Anita Rally. Each February, the Club goes to the Santa Anita Race Track for a special weekend of horse racing. Here are the pictures from our 2005 Santa Anita Day at the Races.....
A special thanks to HMC Club Members Jerry & Judy Miller for providing these pictures
The horse racing buffs gathered in great strength at Santa Anita land did they have beautiful weather and racing. Everything worked out for us.
The HMC Club had two races honoring our group in the program. The race on Saturday was won by a long shot trained by Kentucky Derby fame D.Wayne Lucas, whom we got to meet in the winning circle. The Superfecta paid $57,000 for a $1 bet. WOW!

Even though the weather was cloudy, this didn't stop the morning workouts.
We had delicious catered lunches on both days, but the best was provided by our campers pot lucking. We had a roaring campfire fueled by our Wagonmasters: Al Raine and Phil Griffin.
After breakfast it was time for the Tram Tour of the stable area
