This cut is not slated, as this is a prepared / edited Reel. Handwritten date on the back of the actual Tape Box reads “11-26-68”. This corrido takes place on November 13 and it is about a horse race. Oscar Huerta owned Yegua Zarca from Linares, Nuevo Leon. Manuel Lara was the jockey of the Yegua. The horse that Zarca ran against was very fast. Gilberto Rodriguez placed his bets for the Zarca to come out on top. At 2pm, Zarca came out the gates first and won.
