A throng of cell-phone and camera wielding onlookers greeted the Pony Express Re-rider to Genoa around 2:25 p.m. Wednesday.
As the two riders galloped into town a cheer went up.
Moments later the mochila was transferred from one horse to the next, and was on its way south down Foothill Road.
The rider should turn up Old Kingsbury for the steep climb over Daggett Summit and down the other side to arrive in Stateline by 5 p.m.
Volunteers carry the mochila, or the pouch containing the mail, from St. Jo, Mo. to Old Sacramento.
