How Do You Like to Bet ?

The walk into the track was exciting. – A day full of promise, as you see humanity taking long strides with the confidence of a gambler. Going to the races was a day to enjoy. Your program in hand, and maybe a tip sheet bought from one of the barker’s promising the daily-double as they […]

The End of Summer

Right about now you’re hearing Don Henley in your head. – No worries, it will disappear once you finish reading. But if not, the “Boys of Summer” are on You Tube to use as your personal handicapping music. – All of the complaining and crying about the humidity will be on the short list as the […]

Make a Racing Bucket List

We’ve all seen the movie, or at least used the term a thousand times. – ” I want to see this track before they make it a shopping mall.” – Good idea as there are more tracks that have fallen by the wayside and they’ll only be visited in pictures. – Maybe you’ve been wanting […]

Long Distance Cheering

I have a few buddies that have qualified for the 17th Annual National Handicapping Championship. – It takes place January 28th – 30th, and there is $2.45 million dollars on the line. It roughly comes out to $800,000 to the winner if you were sitting home wondering. – The NHC is the one contest where […]

From the File of What Are We Thinking ?

Sports are a little slice of timeout we all need. We kick back and enjoy the action, and if there is legal wagering there might even be a dime or two wagered. Ah, nothing like having a bet on the big game or the horse with grey spots. – From time to time we tend to take […]

Giving Thanks for 2015

  The Breeders’ Cup is in the books, and we’re starting to think about the holidays. That’s all good, and time with the family are the best moments in life. In addition to getting in the holiday swing, you’ll see some racing fans sharpening up their skill set. – You’ll see punters focusing in on contest play and […]

Horses to Watch – 8/31/15

The racing world can take a deep cleansing breath knowing everything is going to be alright. American Pharaoh has been a blast of wind that carried the sport into the pages of history. – That will never change, and years from now when you read his name in some “remember when” article, you can think back […]

The Eyes of Chicago Are Upon You

  I love Arlington Park. You have to get there at least an hour and half to walk around and examine the manicured grounds, and see the beautiful artwork and statues. Keep this one on your bucket list before CDI (Churchill) has this one-of a-kind venue holding $4,000 conditioned races. But I digress. – I’ve […]

  Dad has the greatest line in the world that sums up my stupidity. “You’re too old to be that damn dumb.” Well, too soon we grow old and too late we grow wise. The big argument was there was no reason to tell the fib. Why didn’t I just tell the truth? I guess […]

All eyes will be on Hallandale, Florida this weekend. Mother Nature is dealing from the bottom of the deck and most of the country is blanked in sleet, snow, and cold temperatures. This day was created for the “average owner”  and the horses are some of the most competitive runners in the game. There are […]
