Some of the guys at mnr's simulcast theatre LIVE for Oaklawn. Hard case cynics, for the most-guys who would complain about winning the powerball-but they never knock Vic.

It could be genetic, my friend's father hated Pat Summit the famous college girls basketball coach. He had every sports package imaginable and would constantly root against the Lady Vols and would get mad as hell every time they won. If asked why he hated her he would just go on a senseless cussing tirade. Maybe she looked like one of his 4 ex wives.
Wow. Everyone loved Pat Summitt. That is a strange one.

Thanks Paul, we're set for another great meet. Highest purses in Oaklawn history.

Love to see you get involved in the pools.

Our average numbers of starters per race is one of the highest in the country.

Nancy Holthus and I do a pre-race handicapping show.

Maybe we can come up with a couple live ones to get you off to a good start.

When we get going. Opening day Dec 9th. Remind me Mark and I'll give a shout out to the MNR simulcast.

THANKS

Vic, I am by trade a finance guy and have been a fan with roots in upstate NY and that got me involved. At this point I actually have been writing a weekly superfecta key column for Horse Racing Nation and 4 of the published hits were at Oaklawn including one of my favorite runners Rated R Superstar as a key!

I also prefer dirt! and I do listen to what you have to say unlike some other mainline east coast tracks (hint)

The Jess Experiment is working

Jess is doing great, she will become a great announcer if she sticks with it

Check out the first few replays from today, she always figured to get better, if a bunch of cranky old men would just give her a chance...

Nicely done Jess

You're literally insane

I base this on your entire track record here...not just this particular reply (although it certainly contributed to the final assessment)

I think everyone knew she'd get better, purely because it was near impossible to get worse.

I read her bio; she has called races before. It sure doesn't sound like it.

and I enjoy watching looney tunes as well. Porky Pig is the best and reminds me so much of Jessica’s race calls.

Wow, Does that mean we will have a week of no critiques of Jessica and this ridiculous thread can go away?

It's not ridiculous, male track announcers have been criticized here too, many times. Hell, people who are great at their jobs like Vic and Andy have taken beatings here too. Don't be a white knight. It's not picking on her because she's a woman.
