Hix Ring is having their annual derby show and race. If you race a horse you'll want to be in the show- and if you don't you'll want to be here to watch. Grab your arm candy and a hat and spend a day at the races- where competition thrives both on and off the track.
I brushed down Blaze for a few minutes while humming to her as I always did. She was a very peaceful creature, unlike so many humans I knew.
I liked to be silent befor a race to collect my thoughts.It usually helped, hopefully it would today.I watched everyone arrive in the stands before it was time to saddle up. Blaze was ready to go.
The gun fired a little while later and I just remembered telling Blaze to go she knew me too well. We were as one on the track. She sped ahead of the others gracefully and before I knew it she was crossing the finish line first.
Everyone especailly my parents uncle and grandfather were there with me at the winners circle. I answered questions as best as I could then after a long day was ready to go home and put my feet up.
I was still champian but as far as I knew I was still an outsider.
