The pools were swelled, and the place was packed. Those were the days of Thoroughbred racing. Bookies were everywhere, […]

I reached out last week to a rider on Facebook and asked if he would like to chat. He agreed to have a phone interview but not that day. He was going to be traveling to Iowa to ride at Prairie Meadows. Little did I know a few days later that trip would be a great […]

It’s Post Time!

If you play horses from home or at the office, there may have been a time you bet a buck or two on races from Aintree, Ascot, Ayr,  Cheltenham, Doncaster, or Kempton.
