We went to Oaklawn today.  It was an absolutely perfect day.  65 degrees with a breeze.  Look at all the people!
The pretty horses going into the starting gate.
But, the real reason we hiked a mile from our parking place and battled thousands of drunks is right here:

Oaklawn is the only place around here that you can get decent oysters on a half shell.  They are so good.  I mean, I love, love, love oysters and these are the best. We both ate a dozen and shared a platter with french fries, catfish, shrimp, and fried oysters.  Yummy.
After about 15 minutes this is what was left.
I did place a $2 bet on an 11 year old horse.  I lost. Duh.

What do you think?
