Decided at the last minute to visit Lone Star Park on Derby Day and got a great surprise. Scott Wells the President and GM of Lone Star picked my wife and I off the rail and gave us a special private behind the scenes tour of the last race of the day! We got to go out on the track and check out the starting gate right before the 10th race (it was a turf race) and meet the official starter, escort riders, outriders and gate hands. We were allowed to watch the race from the infield and I was close enough to the starting gate to dang near slap the 1 horse on the butt as he launched! Here are some iPhone pic's of the race start I thought I'd share. Really excellent treat and Scott is a super nice guy. Really made our day up

Think I left $50 in their pocket. That's almost like I was making money on the deal up
