  Denada on parade before the race
by KennetRose

You can just stand by the rails and watch the races if you want, but if you do you'll miss a lot.

Before each race the horses are paraded before spectators by the stable lad or stable girl who looks after them. This is where you can get a good look at the horses and see how skittish they are or how well-prepared for the race. If you know what you are looking for then there are hints to how the horse will perform.

The horse in the picture was called Denada - well named as he finished fourth of four finishers in his race!
