The favorites took the top two spots in the Prix d'Ameruique when Ready Cash beat Mahrajah by half a length.
Wouldn't it be great if we had something like this in North America. Granted, the French Government runs horse racing in France, but look at the pre-race show prior to the Prix d'Amerique in the following video. While you look at the preliminary activities, take a look at the grandstand. And we get excited when 24,000 people show up to the Hambletonian?
Maybe we can learn something from the French?
