Adele and I decided to go for an adventure last night. We decided to go to the Greyhounds.

The track is just off Hindmarsh drive opposite the Best Western Sundown Motel. $5.50 each Entry fee to get us both in and we settled down to have a bit of a gamble.

We had a great time, we arrived just as Race 1 started. And we got to see a dog cartwheel along, it then picked itself up off the ground and continued.

Race 2, We picked Happy Glow who managed to come in third. Yay we thought, Money back. Until we found out they only pay place for 2nd :(.

Race 3, Adele`s pick Milly Moo managed to shoot out of the barriers in first:
The Greyhound then ran along in the lead till about 3/4 of the way through the race, when it decided to turn around and go back the other way. We were laughing about it and then Adele realised that the owners were sitting behind us.

Race 4 :

- We picked Demon Fighter, but we came in third again. No money back :(

Race 5 :
The Anytime Fitness Stakes(Huge Cash Prize to the winner of $770) over 440m, we picked Chocolate Cobber initially but was told it was scratched late. So we picked Apidra. Again, Third :(.

We decided to save our money and head to the Tigers club where we drowned our sorrows in food and diet soft drinks. Still a good night out had by both of us :)
