Problem Ponies – Horses to Watch – 8/15/16

This past weekend has me waiting for the first leaf to drop and temperatures to cool down. I love the summer racing season, but the heat, rain, and humidity has me ready for the next season. Oh, I’ll relish every time the bugle sounds as they come onto the track for Saratoga. But the foliage […]

Problem Ponies – Horses to Watch – 8/5/16

The big weekend was good and bad. – Great races and Mother Nature had her way drenching the ovals for most of the country. Take nothing away from a super weekend and you can bet dollars to donuts they’ll be back a little later in the summer / fall to set the record straight. – […]

Another Day at the Office

  I was walking into the track┬álast week and ran into the “Iron Man” of racing, Perry Ouzts. He was getting off of his beautiful motorcycle and I bet this gorgeous bike cost more than my first house ! – He asked if I would snap a picture of him in front of his bike. […]

What’s On My Mind ?

I’m sick and tired of reading ‘telephone tough-guys” who smack the sport. I wish I could put a bow on top and make it look pretty, but that’s just not the case. There have been a few things on my mind, and I think some folks may agree. If not, I’m sure they’ll disagree and┬ábring […]
