    Default Rolex security

    Anything new here because of the Boston bombing? Wondered if there might be bag restrictions.

    No restrictions and no more security than going to an NFL game. No lines either in spite of the extra step.

    Default They did search our bags today

    But not in the Patron Tent, over at the reining competition. At 3pm when there was almost nobody there.

    Really, for the most impact, they'd have to hit the Durbarry tent. '

    Though, how exactly, at this event, are you going to spot a suspicious person with a bag?

    Very, very tough. A bag rich environment for sure.

    You will be most at risk -- odds of dying: 1 in 19,000 -- on the road to Rolex. The risk of dying in a terrorist incident is 1 in 20 million.

    The chance of being struck by lightning are 1 in 5.5 million, so do be careful out there.

    There was a bomb vehicle with swat (or whatever they are called) on the grounds as well.

    Default KSP usually brings all the "specialty trucks"

    They're always down by the indoor. There are always swarms of them, no real difference this year.

    And the odds of it happening at a horse related event that the general public doesn't even seem to know exists is probably astronomically higher than those odds!

    I was pretty careful at the food court too, who knows how many hidden gut bombs were planted there!

    I noticed on Sunday, I didn't bring a back pack in, but was asked to empty my pockets and lift my jacket and turn so they could see the waistband of my pants. Saturday, they just checked my backpack. I was wearing the same jacket both days. Saturday they just poked through my bag.

    I wonder if they had an incident of some sort on Saturday?

    I think it depends on who was doing the searching. There were two women on Sunday when we arrived who seemed to be pretty into it, as opposed to the guy on the other table, who just waved us through (we didn't have bags).
