Luck Be A Lady Tonight: One Amazing Afternoon at the Far Hills Races

They call you Lady Luck.
But there is room for doubt
At times you have a very unladylike way of running out
You're on this a date with me
The pickings have been lush
And yet before this evening is over you might give me the brush
You might forget your manners
You might refuse to stay and so the best that I can to is pray.

Luck be a lady tonight
Luck be a lady tonight
Luck if you've ever been a lady to begin with
Luck be a lady tonight.

Luck let a gentleman see
How nice a dame you can be
I've seen the way you've treated other guys you've been with
Luck be a lady with me.

A lady doesn't leave her escort
It isn't fair, it isn't nice
A lady doesn't wander all over the room
And blow on some other guy's dice.
So let's keep the party polite
Never get out of my sight
Stick with me baby, I'm the fellow you came in with
Luck be a lady
Luck be a lady
Luck be a lady tonight...

... or in Roxy's case, luck was a lady this afternoon at the 2008 Far Hills Race Meeting. Rex, London, Maddie and I missed the first race of the day, but joined our group of friends with a great tailgate spot near the back stretch of the steeplechase for races 2, 3, 4, and 5. Everyone was making $2.00 bets on the horse races, so we put down our ten bucks for the last five races, and later added another $3.00 for the big race of the day, the Grand National. The photo you see here is Good Night Shirt coming past us in the lead at the end of the race. We won, we won...fifteen bucks!
