On November 23rd in 2014, I watched the Mile Championship of the G1 Race at Kyoto Racecourse.
We were a group of four - myself, my wife and our two friends. One of the friends we went with has been working at Hanshin Racecourse as a turf manager for a long time, but he wanted to watch a race once in his lifetime, not as staff but as a spectator, with a betting slip in his hands. However, he didn't want to watch a race at his workplace where he could be recognized by his colleagues. Instead, we chose this place which is located in my hometown Kyoto. What we watched was of course, the G1 Race!
