I liked Luke. He got "asked for speed" from Dave Johnson, who used to say it all the time at Santa Anita. He got his dream job at Churchill, called some Kentucky Derbies, and tragically died very...

I think the mistake you make is thinking a racecaller is like a front man. The front man of horse racing is the horse, followed by the jockeys and trainers.

The best argument for Ruffian is she won all those races. It's hard to win a bunch of races in a row!

The problem is that she was beating up on New York 2 year old and 3 year old fillies race...

I wonder whether there are any business reasons for this along with the reconstruction of the courses. Is it cheaper to operate at Aqueduct (smaller facility)?

Yeah, Gunnar was at Ferndale at a time when there was either no simulcasting of Ferndale's races or very little.

Buchdahl was full time at Oak Tree for many years (indeed, I think he started back at age 18 or 19 or something (replacing Terry Gilligan), which was unheard of). He called all three of John Henry's...

The first principle you list is the "rule of lenity"- an actual rule lawyers apply in interpretation. Err on the side of narrowing the prohibition.
