Plantation, FL, September 2, 2022 — We are back in front of a keyboard for the first time after 3-1/2 days of travel hell–you don’t want to know!
Could the timing have been worse? Probably not. I missed the Kentucky Downs lid-lifter. Have seen only two races–from Saratoga this week as of Friday morning.
The fastest horse in the world runs tomorrow at Del Mar. The Jockey Club Gold Cup. The Hopeful. The NFL and College Football? You’re kidding me.
Oh, Meadowlands is back…
Haven’t written a word post-Travers. But the handicapper feels somewhat vindicated and I’m happy for the horse. His potential finally erupted.
It will not be timely–or early–per usual. But we’ll catch up. Please be patient, we have little choice with only two hands and one slightly used brain.
But slept in my own bed Thursday night; feel refreshed and ready. We’ll handicap the major weekend events, per usual, a little behind our personal schedule but in plenty of time to get your bets down at Saratoga, Del Mar, Kentucky Downs and Gulfstream.
With the help from Meadowlands Handicapper Dave Brower, early doubles at the Big M this weekend.
And to the people who help us keep the lights on, a little forbearance, please.
Happy to report after Covid, Day 31, finally feel something like normal. And the $10,000 worth of damage to our VW Beetle Turbo repaired expertly by Rich Magnell of Superior Motors just over the Saratoga city line on Maple Ave. in Wilton.
So, how was your August?
