I don't post a lot.  But it's my birthday and I feel like tossing out a few compliments and complaints.

I love BTW and 90% of the members.  I'm pretty fed up with the vocal minority using 3 or 4 different names to pat themselves on the back and insult people.  Get a life!  Nobody here really gives a $hit about anything you say.

I think our moderator does WAY better than most people would do trying to run the asylum.  Way to go, Janine!

Balmoral's time posted between races is embarrassingly ridiculous.  Who thought that was a good idea?

Al's Hammered is the most fun horse to watch in years.  How can you not love him?

WEG racing is such a pleasure to watch.  Great camera work, clear picture and chicklets.  And they offer their programs with a lot of statistical info free on their web site.  Too bad Ontario's legislature is brain dead.

OK, off my soapbox.  Have a great day, everyone.

Thank you all for the birthday wishes.  A few more comments and questions.

Has anyone ever seen APPRENTICE and MR.DALRAE in the same room at the same time time? (see their posts above).

Someone please tell the comment maker for Balmoral's program that a horse cannot be "hurt by the draw" when post positions are assigned.

Is Maywood still the least fan friendly venue in America?  I stopped going there a year and a half ago.  I miss it as much as I do heartburn.

But what I do miss is Hawthorne as a harness track.  Loved the double headers on Saturday in the winter.  I saw Speedy Crown and Fresh Yankee race there.  I had my biggest score ever on a trifecta there.  3-9-8.  Bill's Daughter-Edgewood Keene-Rozella.  Paid over a grand on a $3.00 ticket (which was the minimum tri bet at the time).  A buddy and I split a $10.00 straight ticket cuz the $3.00 lines were too long to get the bet in before the race went off.  And, of course, Hawthorne is where Pacific Flight N won the Pretty Direct twice.  Good old Hawthorne.  (sigh)
