How Do You Like to Bet ?

The walk into the track was exciting. – A day full of promise, as you see humanity taking long strides with the confidence of a gambler. Going to the races was a day to enjoy. Your program in hand, and maybe a tip sheet bought from one of the barker’s promising the daily-double as they […]

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 […]

Glimmers of Gold

You’ll know when you see that blinding piece of elegance glimmering. – Maybe you could compare it to Alfred R. Ferguson’s paradoxical poem “Nothing Gold Can Stay.” As it echoes “Nature’s First Green is Gold.” – This past weekend I’m not sure if I saw a glimmer or the real thing. But one thing is […]

“The Unofficial Kentucky Derby Program”

The days leading up to the Derby were magical. Reading the “Racing Edition” in the local newspaper, and listening to stretch calls on radio with my Dad. There was not much television coverage with the exception of the Derby race itself. I look back and think about the times spent with a man who was my friend, […]

 Not to sound like fool or a sexist jerk, but an old friend of mine and I coined this back in college. It was not for the faint of heart, and one had to build a bankroll to do it right. At the end of the day, if you broke even you were probably doing […]

What’s On My Mind?

We live in a time when people sit in the same room and have a smart phone, iPad, or some sort of techno distraction as we no longer communicate. My girlfriend plays a game on her phone about trivia, and my son texts to his friends. I asked what they wanted to watch, and nobody answered back. […]

Ranting, Raging, and Shoveling Snow

I don’t know about you, but I’m sick of winter. Take it all back. I don’t want to go sled riding, take part in a snow ball fight, or even make snow cream. I want this crap to melt, or be sent off somewhere there’s a drought. OK, I think I’m done for a little while. […]

Q & A with Scott Hazelton of HRTV

When my local cable company began offering the racing package, I knew there was going to be an indention on my couch cushion. We were offered TVG in the beginning, and it stayed on for quite sometime. Then came along HRTV. I have to say it took awhile, but eventually it took over and became […]

Now, before you get any wild ideas about Hollywood parties or chocolate fountains just hold on there partner… Oh, it is nice and has all of the comforts that a horse player needs. A couple of computers, a big screen TV, and a stocked fridge with your favorite drinks. But this past week gets me thinking about what have […]
