Looking forward to this meet.

Gulfstream is almost always bad for me and NYRA racing isn't kind to me either but at Oaklawn I have a shot.

The Food at Del Mar is subpar cuz it's on state land and they are required to use Premier Food Services by the State

The Brandt BBQ Beef sandwiches are actually quite good. And while I'm not much on alcoholic beverages, I am reliably informed that the cocktails are excellent.

But I do concede it's kind of hit and miss.

I thought our first three days of racing was very solid. Believe me, it's going to get better and better as all the new trainers arrive and purses continue to rise.

And I thought the first 3 days of announcing by you was very solid too!

Thanks CHECK. Some rustiness.

Toughest part was the last race all three days with the waning sunlight.

We got them around there though.

Gonna be a GREAT meet IMO.

And that sunlight wanes further for two more weeks! We'll be cheering for clear skies, if not all day, at least towards the end of the card these next two weekends.

Did you get your house finished?

Or will you be dealing with that during the meet?

We've been three weeks away from finishing for SIX MONTHS Ralph.

Can see the finish line now. Should for sure be in before Jan. 1

Tina gave up her job running the press box to oversee the final touches.

We also bought a top sider right next door which she's renovating.

Hoping to make that an Air BnB.

A trainer friend of mine from SF, Rene Amescua is going to stay in it for the season.

He just arrived yesterday. Bringing 18 head including the super nice sprinter C Z ROCKET.
