Pleasanton North Rotary's annual Day at the Races was a decidedly upscale affair held in the air-conditioned splendor of the Grandstand Turf Club, with a fine buffet lunch, comfortable seating and convenient access to betting stations and multiple video monitors covering the races.  More than half of club members and many spouses attended a portion of the four-hour event.  Everyone went home a winner in  one way or another.  Here are a few photos.
