The horses were entering the Starting Gate for the First Race of the Pick
Six on Saturday. As the last few horses were loading .. he breathlessly
announced " The Pick Six pool is now OVER A MILLION .."
Then .. during the race .. He told us this :
" The horse is really a handful -- pulling THE BOY almost out of the
saddle .." THE BOY ? :eek: :( :mad: :ThmbDown:

Wow! You guys are a tough crowd. Is that all he did?

All this attention to announcers is starting to get to me. I was watching the 8th at Fairgrounds yesterday and a horse named "Deep Canyon" split horses to win in the last 100 yrds. I immediately scolded the announcer in my mind. I thought he should have said

"Deep Canyon carves his way through for the win"

This place will make you crazy!!! :lol: :lol:

In years past (way past) riders were referred to as boys, as in "there is a change of boys on the #7".

I am aware of that fact :jump: Back in the day .. the local scratch sheet or even the DRF - would have " NO Boy " listed as the rider. It was obviously telling us that a Jockey has not been named.

I wont republish my comment about Brother Denman. Actually I should really
try to do better when it comes to being critical of the Race Caller. I will
make that.. my New Year's Resolution.
It is all gonna be FINE in Oh Nine. .. When I shall return.

....""" theeee Flag is up ..." :lol: :jump: :) ;) :kiss:
