|Senorita, winning the mule race at Sacramento, California State Fair|
The winner of the mule race was Senorita. Everyone kept out of her way. She has a reputation for being a little feisty, a little... mulish... in the winner's circle. But what a run!

|Before race three, California State Fair... WMA Red Pepper about to begin his solo race|
But guess who was way out in front at the start of the race!
And look who won! Yes, it was WMA Red Pepper, living up to his name, and bringing in the prize for trainer and owner Helen Shelley. Big smile on jockey Jesus' face at the end of the race, and the crowd went wild!
