Suryia, an orangutan, and Roscoe, a bluetick hound, are virtually inseparable.
They hang around together all day.
They even swim together.
Suryia isn't a great swimmer so he wears a life vest.
Suryia walks Roscoe around the compound.
Sometimes, after rolling around, going for a walk, or swimming, they ride Bubbles, the elephant.
They share almost everything. Roscoe doesn't like bananas.
Their popularity has soared since the book came out, and Suryia and Roscoe are on tour to promote it.
The book has lots of pictures of the pair, along with their story, and is available now.
Patrons dress in their finest attire and pack themselves in to mingle, watch the races
and the fashion.
Two people were arrested for possession of cocaine on the first day of the five day event this year, so the police have decided to crack down on drug use among the 40,000 person crowd.
Officers with sniffer dogs have been patrolling the grounds to identify spectators carrying narcotics. White metal depository boxes have been placed around the course, and at the Grandstand Enclosure entrance. Guests are asked to deposit their illegal drugs into these boxes.
It's only fair, as the horses are drug-tested before the race.
The boxes are secured by a nylon cable tie to keep miscreants from appropriating the drugs.
