Sandra and Michael’s Grand Day Out (19/06/2010)

Page 2 of 2: At the Lingfield Park Races

In the afternoon we left to drive to Lingfield Park Races. On the way we had a colour quiz to complete. Luckily we had Peter and Debbie to help us. It was difficult to drive and look for clues at the same time. I have never been more pleased to see 30-mile signs!

Arriving at Lingfield we were quick to find a bookmaker and place our first bet. By listening to Michael, I managed to back a winner. One more bet later in the day and I ended up in profit. The highlight for those of us not familiar with horse racing was the charity race between various cartoon characters.

A Mamma Mia concert and fireworks followed the racing. However, the weather had not been perfect and as by then it started to get cold we left for home. Thanks to Michael and Sandra to what turned out to be indeed a Grand Day Out.
