A man in a dapper red sportcoat blared with his bugle to
announce that the horses at Stockton's race track were coming onto
the track and the race would begin in 10 minutes.
It would be the first race of the day and the first race of the
nine-day racing season at the San Joaquin County Fairgrounds.
