We were all talking at the Pleasanton California OTB this weekend about how much Frank Mirahmadi has improved.  We are loving his calling now. 

My husband listened to a morning radio show that day and heard that the owner of Oaklawn was really happy with his work too.  They mentioned he was handed an envelope containing a very nice bonus.

So I hope Vegas Jay will pass on how much we bettors in California appreciate his friend now.

Go Frank!

A bonus from "Uncle Charlie" Cella? Incredible, usually all you get from him at the end of the year is an ugly tie.

I've personally seen Mr. Cella being very generous with the less fortunate so giving a bonus to Frank wouldn't surprise me at all.  He is a very intimidating individual and can come off as gruff, but I think the family runs Oaklawn very well and they don't seem to have much turnover at that track in the higher level positions.  Anyone that works for Stronach for more than two years is an anomaly.  As much *** and complaining that I see on internet forums about tracks, I seldom see people having issues with Oaklawn.

Frank is a pro, always relates to the players and seems to genuinely love the game.

Yeah, but "Earl" strikes me as the kind of sour guy that you would gift with an ugly tie; says more about him than it does Mr. Cella.

Anybody that knows me would consider me the opposite of "sour."
Now Uncle Charlie, he's sour. Still mad that his family got run out of Missouri by the do-gooders in 1905.
Also I gave my tie to someone less fortunate. He liked to wear it as a bandana during float trips.

Knowing Frank as well as I do, I can honestly say he is the consummate pro in his approach to everything he does. Whether it's preparation for an on-air shift on TVG, preparing to call a live race, or formulating a morning line for the track program, the advance work he does is exhaustive. He is an absolute perfectionist, which also means he is, at times, his biggest critic.

Call it the spartan work ethic, but Frank lives by the old adage, "The more effort you put into something, the more you get out of it."

It sure is showing in his calling now.  He is so smooth and it seem effortless and I know it is not!

I forget if I mentioned he and I were on a local radio show in Ferndale and he told everyone pamwaggy called him out but she should have.  I thought that was really amazing. What a guy.
