What is the most irritating behavior DURING A RACE?

The smooching drives me nuts.

You can choose two or more behaviors.

Without a doubt, the asshole that yells "Drop dead three horse!", "Jump the rail!", "Fall off the horse Ortiz!".

With any luck he gets run over by the bus that he's waiting for once Los Al is done.

One behavior and one person in particular.


The behavior piece is the whole, "come on 1-4! 1-4! Ok 6-5! 6-5!"

Maybe the person had twenty different exacta combinations, but yelling out everyone of them drive me nuts.

The one person is this guy at the Borgata. He yells at the top of his lungs, "PUMP HIM! PUMP HIM!!!!" This goes on every, single, race. I actually plan my trips around days he isnt there.

The behavior of being so cock-sure you're riding a wiretowire winner that you have to keep looking back, over and over to show up the other riders......Biggest offender is Paco Lopez..

1)drop kicking the garbage can
2)the Jamaican connection at Aqueduct telling the jocks how bad they are doing
3)the guy who has every single trifecta combination except the one that just won...
4)the "I got this tip from the trainer who said this one can't lose"

Smooching? What the heck are you talking about? Not hip obviously. Actual or other?!

I'd say rooting home single race 1-1's at astronomical volume levels other than the break a leg routine!

"Come on 1-6...come on 1-6"...the moron screams as the horses near the wire. The race ends up 3-4...and he turns to his friend and says..."I still got it, but not for as much as I had the 1-6".

Kissing sound = Smooching

And there's also the guy next to you telling you "You got it", "You Got it" at the top of the stretch.

Oh man that is hideousness! I am guilty of the latter on occasion. But only at 5-1 or better!

look on the bright side, these are people that would be molesting small animals if not for the distraction of horse betting.

There is always a guy at the track I call the jinx rooter. If he starts yelling for a horse and it is the same horse you bet on, you can tear up your tickets before they cross the finish line.
