We did just fine, Viriamu's brother romped home easily on our champion horse, without much serious competition. We duly cooked and sold our three hundred portions of chicken and chips!
We even sold a bunch of t-shirts and made it onto the Sunday evening news! A successful day, the crowds were there, but it was all a bit too predictable...
Since the race, several new horses have arrived by boat, one from Tahiti, a race-horse that has competed at the hippodrome in Pirae, and another from Tubuai. So maybe July's race will be a bit more exciting, the bets are already on!
