Nineteen Trucks of Dirt...

...It's not just dirt, it's "footing". But it takes 19 dump trucks to move it from city to city. While the base is "rodeo dirt" ordered on a city by city basis, the top layers are special K-Sand mixed with washed Fibar, a wood-chip sort of footing that helps make it safer for the Lipizzans to leap and pirouette.

In St Louis, there was an instant changeover from ice for a hockey game one night, to footing for the Lipizzans the next day.

Watch for those 19 trucks to zoom up Interstate 95 from Washington DC to Philadelphia on Monday morning!

Wow, 19 trucks?!?! I had no idea! Hopefully they'll zoom up I-95 before/after rush hour on Monday morning. :-)
