Great Day at Santa Anita Park!

Had a nice time at Santa Anita Park especially at their swanky Chandelier Room and hip speakeasy. Santa Anita is one of the nicest tracks in the country imho and the Chandelier Room did not disappoint! There was a great buffet and a really amazing tequila tasting with brands such as Patrón and Herradura Ultra. I even bet on a few horses!
