Well I havent been able to watch full cards. Just races here and there. Today I saw the 2nd and 3rd races.

I would say your sounding more confident and more comfortable in calling the races and you are developing your own style.

I do like how you say "Ladies and Gentlemen" I dont mean your accent. I mean that you say "Ladies and Gentlemen". I also like how before a race, you say "You have made (whoever) the favorite". One Saturday, I heard you explain the different types of exotic bets which was very good. The point I am trying to make is that you do not sound like you are just announcing races, you sound like you are talking to individuals.

I have noticed that when you give prices, at least tonight, that you said "cents". You had been saying for example, "Six dollars twenty". I dont know if thats by accident or intentional but it was unique the way you had said it.

You also handle the dead time during inquiries better. At the start, you would say, "There is an inquiry. Please hold all tockets. More information to follow" but you would say it 1000 times. Now it isnt as much. You letthe situation stand for itself.

Just do me a favor please. Since the horse population hasnt grown yet, tell Greg Keidel to card some odd distance sprint races.l Try to be different and make your own mark.

Perhaps you could explain for my benefit how I am bad, so I can improve?

I have announced a lot of runners on the turf in England.

Ok reading your post is 15 seconds of my life I can never get back.

At least have the intellectual integrity to say what you dont like about him and where you think he could improve in your opinion.

Craig, the color "coordination" and cap are good stuff.

Having been at the track several times, it's clear that many folks don't totally get the dynamics of the race -- they're yelling "go 3, go 3," to a horse that is grinding first up (or badly hung speed toast), or patiently following cover on the outside, or sitting on the rail waiting to be let loose. How can the race caller help?

Summer's coming; must be fuller fields and fresh horses a'comin' as well.

I havent heard you call. I did take the time to look at all the posts of your basher and its par for the course for him and very unlike this forum. That you are asking for criticism and peoples thoughts is very admirable. I have a few friends who are race callers and you guys do a great job. I will try to catch a race and give an opinion.

I watch most of your races at home since I know many of the horses up there and you have improved by leaps and bounds since the first week. You are much more comfortable with the style of racing and horses/drivers and you seem to have found a template from which to call all races in a similar fashion. I have no complaints at this point. I have 10 days off starting Friday and hope to come up and race a couple toward the end of next week. Maybe I'll get a chance to say hello.

Why the hell cant you just say where you feel this guy can improve if you feel so strongly about it?

He didnt ask to be compared to other announcers. He asked about his performance.

The guy has called what, 100 harness races so far? Offer the guy positive advice and maybe he will develope into an announcer you like.

It takes guts for a guy like that to come to a message board and ask for a review of his work so he can get better.

Never mind the fact Billy's not calling at Buffalo.  Robin is.

Craig, you're doing fine, mate.
