Watching Greatness

I was reading an article about riders and where they cut their teeth. Everyone starts somewhere, and it doesn’t matter how big or small the venue you ply your trade. Some were happy to be the big fish in the small pond, and others had bigger dreams. In my travels I’ve been lucky enough to […]

It’s good to look back and see what you’ve accomplished, need to work on, and the incredible things you see along the journey. In seven days there were some eye-opening, good fortune, and emotional experiences. We are lucky each and every morning when our feet hit the floor. At the end of each week, I like […]

Free Selections / Memorial Day Weekend / Belmont

In racing we count the seasons by which track is running, and what event is up next. Then there is the more exact way for a handicapper to keep time, and that is in 20 minute increments. You know, the time between races? Memorial Day weekend has always been a “starting gate load” for the […]

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 […]

After the red-hot Thoroughbred action that came our way as the Breeders’ Cup. The rest of racing  looks pretty much dismal. I used to be a part of this crowd. And once the Classic was declared official, I decided it was time to go to sleep until the Fair Grounds opened, or when the call-to-the-post sounded […]
