This Week in Racing

Nothing like a cliff note version of what’s going on. Don’t think of it as a cheat sheet as there are many issues that deserve a fuller explanation. – But here are a few items that caught my eye and as usual, the opinions here are just that. Remember what your high school teacher used to […]

Santa, I’ve written for many years, and I’ve always looked forward to sending my wish list. I know I’m a little too old to be writing, but the magic of Christmas has a way of bringing out the hopeful kid in all of us. – Santa, I sure hope you look over my list and […]

  “I just dropped in to see what condition my condition was in.” – Kenny Rogers and the First Edition may have been on to something good. – Racing should take this little journey from time-to-time to check out what is right and what needs to change. – With this song playing in my noggin […]

Another Day at the Office

  I was walking into the track last week and ran into the “Iron Man” of racing, Perry Ouzts. He was getting off of his beautiful motorcycle and I bet this gorgeous bike cost more than my first house ! – He asked if I would snap a picture of him in front of his bike. […]

What’s On My Mind ?

I’m sick and tired of reading ‘telephone tough-guys” who smack the sport. I wish I could put a bow on top and make it look pretty, but that’s just not the case. There have been a few things on my mind, and I think some folks may agree. If not, I’m sure they’ll disagree and bring […]

I speak to folks around the track everyday. I’m not running for mayor, it’s just a little something I’ve always enjoyed. – The players are the most important part of racing. If you don’t believe me, just shut the doors for one year, and see if you’ll be up and running the next. One of my big pet […]

Been a Long Time Between Drinks

I was sitting at the dinner table for a “state-of-the-union” chat with my son. We talked about football, girls, grades, and how much he’s looking forward to high school. But as we did dishes together, and the talk turned to workman quiet. I thought about the huge task for teenagers to make the biggest decisions of their life. […]

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 […]

As The Smoke Clears

It starts the previous September, October, and continues until the Breeders’ Cup. Then we get a short break until early winter. The preps start in Florida, California, Fair Grounds, and a few in New York. All preps are important along the way, and all must be watched. The Fair Grounds has been good for the Oaks, but […]
