Yep Ferndale was the exclusive domain of the GREAT GUNNER FROINES.

Howdy Pardner!!

An excellent way to describe his calls. SOMETHING INDEED.

An article on the aforementioned Gunnar Froines.

When I am calling Ferndale in 2 weeks time, I wonder if i will be in the same position in the press box he is?

Imbriale dropped the ball in the 5th today at SAR when the longshot experienced an extremely troubled trip and was eventually eased on the backstretch. Imbriale failed to notice or acknowledge that the had been eased up and was out of the race.

The SAR live crew also failed to mention anything about the after the fact.

Nobody gives a shit about 40-1 shots

Some Race Callers can make a mistake look so smooth that most won't notice...

With this guy , you know when he screws up....he hesitates gets flustered, etc etc...

and then I shake my head when I think about this thread and all the supporters...

I think anyone mentioning a little know race caller needs to dig up a link to one of their calls. Also do any of you SoCal racing encyclopedias like Vic and Dilan remember a trainer at Los Al that had the golden touch with 870 yard horses winning $20k claimers with horses he claimed for as little as $2k. They would start climbing the ladder after he claimed them and start descending quickly as soon as he lost them. I think it was sometime in the 80's. I don't recall his name, it was finally found he was giving the poor things heroin. I don't remember his name, nor where I read it. It had to be in the Herald Examiner, LA Times, OC Register or the Racing Form. I was pissed when the Herald went out of business.

Well, then post them Einstein. Better yet, post your NYRA card picks as Talking Horses wraps up, and let's see how you compare to Serling and the Big A across a card or two. Or at least the races with Euros.

Until then, you're just blowing hot air.

Johnny I has been terrible today, blowing call after call, over his head

Meanwhile Peter Berry calls a great WV Derby, he just sits there and no one ever gives him any real respect, and of course there are others mentioned earlier in this thread

I don't get it
