December meeting

We've been a number of times. My favourite Scottish course. The amenities are good and always such a great atmosphere. Parking is plentiful and right beside the course.

Had a great day out here last Saturday. Never even had a sniff of a winner but great laugh all the same. Food available all day if needed, and always lots of beer on tap.

We have been to the races many times in the past few months. Alway a thrill. Stand by the barrier and feel the thud of the horses hooves as they thunder past. Lovely small, compact grounds. Very friendly. Lunch at Rosie's is good. So if you are able to go, enjoy.

Had a great day at Kelso Races, never been to a course where you are so close to the horses in running. Bar staff and racecourse officials were so friendly, it was a real family atmosphere.

So much to see and just so much going on, even if people watching is your thing there is always a wealth of variety at a racecourse. Oh, and the horses look good too.

A bunch of girls at a race day in December. Fantastic day out. Good hearty grub, a seat in a warm room, a well stocked bar and a few winners - what more could you ask for?! Brilliant.
