Loner Lands / Saint Louis BOUM! \\ RACE DAY , OPEN .
« on: September 15, 2019, 06:22:04 PM »
      The annual Darboux Race Day was in full swing.

❝ - And here comes Canonero coming up to the starting line. ❞ An older man, aged and wrinkled, stood just outside the track, megaphone in hand as he stood in front of the VIP bar, open for all groups to make use of on this day. ❝ They're all lined up now; we're ready for a start! ❞ He continued enthusiastically, mustache styled elegantly, adorned in the most luxurious of suits. He peeked over to look at the horses, all shifting backwards and forwards, side to side, eager to begin galloping. A woman, stood on the inside of the track, was speaking to the jockeys, words failing to meet anybody else's ears before she nodded towards the commentator. ❝ Okay, we are ready for a start! ❞ He repeated, voice somewhat raised to speak over the music playing in the stands. He turned around, eyes looking towards the race horses before the woman raised a gun into the air.

And then, she fired a blank, and the horses went galloping.

Piers stood in the bar, leaning against the balcony which faced onto the tracks as he kept his gaze on a particular horse; his beautiful Buveur d'Air. Baiard, as he preferred to call the stallion, was his prized racehorse - many people had placed bets on him today, Piers included, and he truly hoped that today Baiard would continue as a winning horse.

 ❝ And they're off!... And it's Buveur d'Air who takes the lead, followed closely by Dagworth Maestro - ❞ The man began rambling almost inaudibly through the megaphone, excitement overcoming him.

He quirked a brow, briefly looking over his shoulder to look over towards the bookmakers behind a booth nearby, overrun by betters wishing to make a bet for the next race. Turning back to keep an eye on the race, he watched as Baiard lagged behind in second place. He nodded his head slowly, clutching more firmly on his walking stick. This would be an interesting race.

Okay so welcome to Saint Louis' annual big race day!! All groups are invited to come and spent the day at the racecourse or stay overnight in the city. Feel free to have them mingling, hanging out in the stands or in the bar, or even going to place bets on a horse !!
