    We all remember the first time we attended a funeral. We dressed up, and felt that uneasy feeling as we looked around without wanting to see the casket. – We’ve seen our share, and as we age we’ll go to more of these than weddings or baby showers. – When you hear about a […]

Free Selections / Saturday 3-26-16 / Meydan

Last week my beginning stage of handicapping pointed me in the right direction. – I started with taking a starter look last weekend, and then I proceeded to download the Winning Ponies E-Z Win Forms. This allowed me a good start, and after downloading the E-Z Win Forms I examined my bankroll and the path to the betting […]

Making the Game Better

Normally if you make the list, it is either a real bad thing or something really sweet. – During the NFL seasons, you will see players who make the injury report. – Do you think this is paid for and printed by the local scribes in your area ? I guess they want you to […]

The good-guy types who are happiest just being a part of our sport […]

      Getting out of town is a treat. For horse players, when they arrive at their destination it is reminiscent of searching under the Christmas tree for the gift with your name attached. I know this to be true when I pulled into the gates of Fair Grounds race track on Saturday. – If you’ve […]

Hey, How You Doing ?

If it has the ring of a Sopranos’ episode or any other mob movie, you’re right on key. You can even toss in some episodes of Friends. But I digress. – Maybe it would be more appropriate to borrow a line from the Big Lebowski / Kenny Rogers and The First Edition. – “I just […]
