Biography: 

Lucius describes the men who crowd around the race track, and bet on the races, as "the same overalls, tieless, the sweated hats, the chewing tobacco" that he associated with the men in the hotel dining room that morning (233). But a major difference is that this crowd is racially unsegregated: "people, black and white" (234). One member of this crowd leads Lightning to the starting line after Ned is disqualified. "People" could imply women, of course, but until Minnie arrives at the end of the third race, there is no evidence of them at the track.
