Horseracing in Turkey
So I every day I get a google news alert about Turkey. This is especially useful since most of the local papers are biased, or at least owned by supporters of the ruling party who go out of their way not to print actual news that may offend the party. Sometimes, the entire alert is filled with American news about Turkey season opening, which isn’t exactly what I’m after but usually entertaining.
Today, though, was a pleasant surprise. Who knew there was horseracing in Turkey? Actually, now that I’m writing this, I guess I did. At a friend’s house I saw an amazing fascinator (type of hat) peeking out from a box, and she explained it was for the Queen’s Cup, in September.
I’ll definitely check it out. I mean, I now have a reason for a fascinator!
