Thanks - I'm a Marylander and thought it was the right move. This sport makes us all cynical as hell, particularly with the overhang of the Servis/Navarro indictments.

I'd likewise lean towards the latter. I'm one of them. Lapsed and/or casual fans who have returned to watch and wager on horse racing with so few sports alternatives on TV. I've handicapped more...

Really liked this yesterday - just a nice moment. It was sweet how she kept drawing out the interview simply to have more time with her father on such a happy occasion.

Prayers up. Rooted for you back in the hockey day, including 1984 with the US Olympic team, and have been a fan since. Have appreciated what you've brought to horse racing.

Thanks for the heads up.

She is the final boss at 2f. Not in the same league, but it reminds me of Immortal Eyes at 4 1/2f at Charles Town for a very long time. Can be beaten but it takes work.
