I like most announcers - they drown out the drunken oafs hollering for their horses to come in.

Call me a sap - I still get goose bumps on your adroit call in the '06 FL Derb

Great races and great horses are the bump providers.

For me, GP is a different place. You're missed by some of us.
Though LarryC is a prince of guy.

Wow, I lost my breath just listening to that call. I'm a southern fella, we don't string that many words together that fast.

Great call.

Battaglia doesn't call KEE - he's the M/L maker.

I believe Kurt Becker calls KEE races.

Could be wrong about that.

You got it - from the beginning (of live callers), I believe.

Yep, guess I was in a Turfway state of mind when I wrote that. I stand corrected. The point was that I have no problem with the sounds of silence.

That being said, there are many fine announcers out there that truly enhance the sport.

Carry on, Carry on,

Am I the only one that got the joke? Keeneland went without any announcers until the 90's.
