That certainly was the case Friday evening as a festive opening night throng braved cool and rainy weather to celebrate the beginning of the track's 16th season.

Michael and Amy Feuerborn's Sis's Sis, the track's champion 3-year-old filly last year, was scratched earlier in the day with a bruised foot.
