Special note -You read correctly.....there is a goat racing stadium. I cannot begin to tell you how excited I am about this but those of you that know me can surely guess. AND.....hold on to your hat......the annual Easter Goat Races are coming up March 24-27. We are SO going. Technically it's Goat and Crab Races, but I couldn't care less about the crab races. There is no skill in that - drop some crabs in the middle of a square and see which one crawls out first. Big deal. Train it to crawl into a pot and I might be interested. However, goat racing had my full attention. It is an established sport(?)/event that has been going on for nearly 80 years. And yes I said skill above. These goats are apparently bred and trained to race. I don't know how but I intend to find out. Stay tuned for a complete report on this with pictures from the stadium and races. No, there is not any "official" betting but if we do find some "side betting" we will put $10 TT down on one for you. Do you think the losers become the next day's curry goat special? We shall see.
