The filly lineup the day after Thanksgiving is outstanding. Bud girls, Beulah Twins, and Hooter girls. How can you handicap with all that around? Plus a Bud cap, $2.50 beer, and Frank Mancari giving a car lease away. If I were 40 years younger, even I might have gone done there.
I was at a day like that at Turf Paradise in January. They had the Cardinals cheerleaders, the Bud girls or Jager girls, and some other cheerleaders (the Rattlers?). All day you would see these big clumps of guys gathered around the girls. If you could have seen it from overhead it probably would have looked like one of those microscope slides of millions of sperm converging on an egg.
I think Hawthorne had something similar last year or the year before. Same thing.
Too bad I am going to miss this.
I wanted to talk serious racing with Katie and Jenna, and find out which one gets to say the exact picks from the program, and which gets to transpose two numbers.
