Notice it premiers on a Tuesday Night. When there is not a single huge ratings grabbing show on network tv.
I will give it a shot.
Wanna bet there will be at least one character on the show that is a jerk?
One the viewers love to hate?

Y'all notice, the guy made this comment to a blonde? Lord, I hope she wasn't so dumb she believed him.

Spaah, I'd rather cash only three as well. Either way, it beats walking out of the track as "Whizz" said of one's empty pockets ... with "rabbit ears." Or was it, "dog ears"?

And this is the very reason I cannot bear this show. It is gross, I cannot stomach it--worms, bugs, etc. Plus, these people never bathe, yet they're surrounded by water.

The only fire that might be built on "Horseplayers" is torching one's DRF on the apron at Big A after being DQ'd. ... I hope it doesn't get this ugly, gentlemen. I really do.

I've heard both rabbit and dog ears. Or 'walking out wearing nothing but a pickle barrel'....

Oh no. Spaah, I just looked again; the time slot. Its up against CBS', Person Of Interest. It ain't got a shot in hell. Gonna have to give this a bit of thought.

I already saw the guy I'd want to pitch, the fool who said he was going to win every race. But then, too, he's probably just trying to hook up with the blonde. "Dumb let me introduce you to Dumber".

I've never heard the pickle barrel deal either. LOLOL

Horseplayers

I just watched a trailer for the new television show with the above title.

Can any of you cats in the know tell me if that is Michelle Yu playing the part of a serious punter?

Any reviews on this yet?

First I heard of this but it looks interesting. Starts Jan 21, 2013 on Esquire. I never heard of that channel but I do have it! Here is a link to see what channel it is in your area.

Nice. i just got Esquire channel on Comcast recently as a free add on. Can't wait to watch this docuseries. I just hope it isn't something with too much fluff added and that it isn't too secretive by the horseplayers and that they actually uncover/explain their methods and knowledge of being in tournaments. This should be exciting.

I also miss Luck on HBO and Jockeys on Animal Planet. I'm glad someone thought enough about our great game to have cameras follow some good horseplayers around the country to different tourneys and show them in a good light (hopefully) .

No kidding. They definitely need some girls in there. I kinda always thought the ones on HRTV were just there to look pretty (which is pretty sexist of me, considering) and then I saw Michelle Yu pick a 70-1 BOMB that came in a while back.

(And yeah, that's her in the trailer. I just watched it.)

That was definitely Michelle Yu.

And here's the link (also posted by Grits at the top of the "This Should Be Interesting" thread). http://tv.esquire.com/shows/horsepla...tncrew-wrapper (click video)

Because I love the show, Leroy Jethro Gibbs and company (NCIS) is networks TV's top drama and has been in the top 5 overall for years.
