The Fall racing season is in full swing, and the sun is beginning to set a little earlier each day. The foliage around the nation is turning from nature’s green goodness to the brilliant colors of autumn. Yes, this is my favorite time of year to watch Thoroughbred racing.

Free Selections / Belmont / Monday / 5-27-2013

My family would gather to watch the Memorial Day parade in a town that looked like Mayberry. The high school band played, decorated veterans walked proudly, and fire trucks blared sirens tossing candy to the kids. The parade would finish 50-yards past our family, and my dad would gather us up to make our trek to River Downs. A fried chicken lunch […]

With no real football until next week, there should be no excuse to buckle down and really get capping. Most of the country has snow, ice, and rain. But if the weatherman is correct, it should be a solid day in Hallandale, Florida as we kickoff the road to the Derby. So, grab your E-Z Win […]
