A fancy, feisty lot of mules and horses tore up the loamy dark track yesterday in Ferndale, to the delight of the hootin', wagerin', drinkin', beef-chewin', funnel-cake-inhalin', corndog-swillin' crowd that packed the grounds and stadium.

If you were the person who forgot to be there, check out what you missed (but don't despair, there's more fun to come, starting with today's races -- post time is 2:07 p.m.):
