"This is my dad, Ed. We’ve been coming to the racetracks since I was born. I’ve been to the races across this country and in Canada. We used to sit over there in the ‘regulars’ section.""Did you ever win big?""He did a couple of times. Once he had to be escorted out because everyone knew he was the one leaving with all the money that day."

Roy (pictured right) politely declined to have his photo taken when I first asked, but as I made my way back down the street a few minutes later, he got my attention and decided he had changed his mind. “A few years ago I would’ve said no because I wouldn’t have wanted to get myself into trouble. But things have changed.” He pointed to the building behind him. “This is a clean and sober house I live in now.” 

David (pictured left) listened nearby while Roy and I talked. “What about me? I’m getting kind of jealous over here. I want to be in your photo.” 

I love the people in this city.
