Grandma used to tell us when we were kids that “everything old is new again” just when we thought we were inventing the wheel. – Yep, she was right then and her words echo truth now. Just to think, she was way ahead of her time. Or, was she around long enough to see things […]

Making the Game Better

Normally if you make the list, it is either a real bad thing or something really sweet. – During the NFL seasons, you will see players who make the injury report. – Do you think this is paid for and printed by the local scribes in your area ? I guess they want you to […]

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.

Under A Hand Ride

      “As he goes to the stick; now he gets a couple of reminders; he is imploring his runner for one more furlong.” – Any of those sound familiar? I know I’ve heard about every announcer at one time or another use descriptive words when a rider uses his stick. But in the times […]

Roman Chapa may be the most “shocking” news in racing. Ok, I’ll stop with the electrical humor, but I’ll say the recent news jolted my senses a bit.

Most think racing goes to sleep after the Breeders’ Cup. I can see why they would think such a thought, as how do you follow up the biggest weekend of racing? Well, for starters you can start looking at the upcoming tracks, as the cycle starts all over again. Another item on your “to-do-list” should be examining […]
