Interview with Danny Holmes

I was rereading some closed threads from July of 2007 about an interview

with the late Danny Holmes. The thread turned into a shouting match

between befuddlem greyfox and others. It seems the interview was live

and there were some problems with lag time but if I read the thread correctly

someone actually has a transcript of the interview and it seemed like it

had some useful information in it. Is this transcript available? I used to

converse with Danny via email and he was always a gentleman I would

really be interested in that entire interview sans the childish namecalling

which entered the thread. Any help would be greatly appreciated....

After reading that interview I wonder if Danny would still use the

Talbot Pace Slide Rule with the synthetic surfaces for sprints?

The game changes so much its a shame when you lose someone who

'caps' along the same line as you

I lived in the same town with Danny. I spent some time with him. Not a lot but a couple of days at the off track betting parlor in Santa Rosa. He was such a gentleman and all around genuine person.

I enjoyed the short time we spent together. Always sad when a horse race afficianado passes away. Maybe he is getting to watch Seabiscut run in Heaven.

Hey Donnie,

Thanks for posting the PDF--appreciate it. Bought the book but misplaced it or loaned it out.

Danny use to post here. Does anyone remember his user name? I recall answering one of his posts not knowing it was Danny and we use to correspond but I can't remember the name he used. Great guy. He passed about 2 yrs ago.
