Our “Google Alert” for Colonial Downs turned up this blog entry. Looks like CLN has some new fans…

I officially completed this Thing to Do when I was in Miami in January 2007. After I swam with dolphins, I went up I-95 to Gulfstream Park and bet on a few races. It only took the window lady yelling at me once to figure out how to place a bet and I played it safe, placing only small bets. I bet on several races, choosing based on which names I liked, and didn’t win all day. Even though I never won, I really got bit by the gambling bug! Luckily for me, there aren’t any tracks in North Carolina or else I may be in the poor house.

Fast forward two years later and I finally got to Colonial Downs last Saturday, which is “only” 2.5 hours up I-95. Ever since I went to Gulfstream and discovered that Colonial Downs was kinda nearby, I’ve been wanting to go. And what better time to go than during the Virginia Derby?
