Derby Points Starting To Rise In Value

“You’ll miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.” I blame my thinking on basketball and the bevy of the hoops action. The old adage used for hoops, tequila drinking, or gambling, resonates in my noggin today. As the point values for the Kentucky Derby and Oaks are hanging in for the final 50-20-10-5 week, you […]

Five Reasons I Love Horse Racing

Do the voices in your head ever tell you to shut it down for awhile? Can you feel doubt creeping in, but you head upstream anyway? Just pick up your feet and keep going. That is the grind. The game requires you to burn away doubt, and ignore the devil in the details. Luck is […]

Invest In The Future Now!

Once upon a time there was the big three: Racing, Baseball, and Boxing. They captured our attention, and one could keep up with the action in the newspaper. How did we go wrong from there? Was there a warning sign we ignored? Most of all, while The Sport of Kings’ is an afterthought in the states. […]

The old adage of the closer you get the less you see doesn’t apply here. We have approached the golden time of when the road to the roses gets sweeter with every prep. I know, I know. There are more than the law allows, and now more than ever you can examine all of the […]

What’s On My Mind?

We live in a time when people sit in the same room and have a smart phone, iPad, or some sort of techno distraction as we no longer communicate. My girlfriend plays a game on her phone about trivia, and my son texts to his friends. I asked what they wanted to watch, and nobody answered back. […]

You Can Hang A Man More Than Once

Roman Chapa may be the most “shocking” news in racing. Ok, I’ll stop with the electrical humor, but I’ll say the recent news jolted my senses a bit. If you’ve been living under a rock, or if you just don’t like to read about stupid human tricks. Here is the abbreviated version. Chapa was caught […]

The Noble Grind

Each day starts about the same. Coffee maker turns on at 5a, and he fires up the computer. He splashes warm water on his day old beard, and begins a close shave for the day. Jumps in the shower, and grabs the clothes he laid out the night before. The coffee is piping hot as he pours it into a Del […]

Remember when the envelope with your name on it came to the house? You were 5-years-old, and you got mail! You tore it open with Mom’s help and discovered you were invited to Cindy Lou’s birthday party. Oh the fun, the kids, the presents, the cake and ice cream. It was your date circled on […]

If you were a hit man, you’d have no problem finding me on a Tuesday afternoon. You better watch out when you see my cart coming. I have my grocery list in hand, and I’m planning meals, school lunches, and snacks in between. I even have a handful of coupons, but I’m lacking the pocket binder the soccer mom’s […]
