The smell of a late season grill, football in full swing and chimneys being swept in preparation of a warm hearth fire as the seasons change. I love this time of year, and more importantly the beginning of fall racing. Living in Kentucky is special this time of year. Add in the fact I’m 80 […]

If you listen closely, you can still hear the pick-five / four tickets being tossed on the floor. Mine included. – But, in keeping with my betting average of one good day, and one where I didn’t know my name. 2020 was not any different. – I look back on a weekend filled with incredible […]

In Three, Two, One – G.D. Hieronymus

What’s Your Favorite ?

I was having a couple of beers with a good friend. – It was his birthday, but I didn’t find out until our fifth beer. I know, I know. Sometimes a few can be more than one, and less than 100. He wanted to stay and bet a few simulcast tracks, and he sure didn’t have […]

All I Ever Wanted to Be Was A Horseplayer

      There was something magical about going with my Dad to the local bar/bookie. The room was filled with smoke, and men stood in a back room sipping draft beer, and reading the Daily Racing Form. I would occasionally see another local kid or two, and we would just hang around and wait. This […]

When you check-in you’ll get a taste of handicapping, behind the scenes happenings, and the day-to-day life in the sport of kings. Yep, just like a buffet, you get a little sample of everything. – Racing is a world within the world, and its never boring. I was reading the sports section about a coach being fired, and how his players found out through […]

In Lexington, Kentucky there are three things on the topic of discussion list: 1) The Kentucky Wildcats, 2) Keeneland Race Course, and […]
