That's fine. They don't want Ken Dolls on TV these days. The more suspicious the better.

The tough looking guy in the hat and coat's a natural fit....unless he's the producer.

I'm in NorCal...the furthestest-most southern track I've been is THE BIG FRESNO FAIR.

One tip...when the horses go back to GGF---deduct 2 seconds off whatever time was reported.

I think he lives near Del Mar race track. I wonder if he'll be part of this reality show.

Andy, is this show going to be on TV??

The person in charge is supposed to call me. Sure it will be on TV but not sure which channel. Del Mar had another reality show for a couple years but I don't remember which channel. Probably the same.

How about you, are you going to participate?

Sounds like it (maybe) if the producer knows your number. Play him Rebecca Black's song from a couple of years ago.

Going to talk to him but don't want to be part of it on air. It has to be done the right way to get any traction. Previous shows like this only appealed to a vary narrow audience.

I do know a few people who would be great on TV.

And Jimmy is a super choice for Host.

There is a two minute preview on the Video page...It looks ridiculously stupid, but I am no fan of reality TV, so I hope I am wrong.

Spoke to Benny for about 20 minutes. Very nice guy who knows something about the sport and is gonna do his (their) best to attract new people to the sport.

May 27th auditions at Del Mar.

I guess I will update on this thread as I talk to him more and get more news about what's going on.

From the short video, it looks as if they've already selected their contestants.

They may have a couple but doubt they would be doing a casting call at Del Mar on the 27th. They've had over 700 people respond as of yesterday

Stuball, the guy who once joined a handicapping video chat in his underwear...I think you'd make a perfect contestant!

The term "Professional" they're using isn't in stone like they're gonna check you r tax return. Looking for competent handicappers who will make good TV and speak to a younger crowd.

They rejected the best person they could have had over something stupid. I like the guy running it cuz he has good intentions but I'm not sure he understands what it REALLY takes to attract gamblers to the sport.

They should have at least 1 gambler playing from home to get a REAL SLICE of (human coverage) I think. oh well when has horse racing ever got it right....

The people up at the OTB are comedy gold. I love all the characters and always get cracked up. I love watching people fall complaining about the outcome midrace.
