          well I just listened to edwards race call ! without much experience edward is better than most annoucers calling today . its hard to believe , but in my opinion he could send his race calling tape to a track that needs an announcer and I would bet he gets the job . although I'm sure edward has a better future than an announcer . but I was impressed and I've heard them all . he did'nt fumble his words and chose his words correctly without any blabber of meaningless comments . your alright young man ! those of you that read this should check it out . just read the vegas downs thread and look for edward . again good job . takes some nerve too !     RTP

Edward:

Better than anyone, I mean anyone Chicago has had in the last 15 years. You have a future in announcing and should consider applying for that position. Just stay away from Chicago because you know what your friend Scott had to endure here. Good luck to you and I am very impressed.

I didn't hear the race call, but if both RTP and Joe Dakuras give their approvals, I have to believe it.  Like Joe wrote, try to stay away from Chicago race-calling if you decide to go that route.  How could I listen to that call?

Edward,

Tremendous call, and you are better I think then Scott. I don't know why you guys overrate Scott here. Sure he is an OK announcer, but that is certainly the extent of it. At times he sounds confused and boring. And when he does get excited, he sounds like he is overdoing it. Keep up the great work Edward, hope to hear you calling somewhere soon.

You are already better than 98.6% of the announcers out there in terms of overall quality.

Each of us has unique tastes.  You can't please everyone.  But I sincerely think that both calls are superior.  Smooth cadence, excellent diction, appropriate inflection based on what was happening.  Very descriptive without being "wordy."  Nice going!

My only criticism is so minor that I debated even mentioning it.  And I admit that if I had been watching the race while listening to the call, I may not have even noticed.  But in the Red Mile race you describe a horse as having a "several length lead."

I believe you need to quantify all numeric values during the course of a race.  The term "several" is too vague.  I have owned several racehorses.  Race Track Phil has several pairs of shoes and boots.  Chicago's racetrack management has made several mistakes.

Get the picture?  Use a concrete number even if it's an estimate.

Keep up the great work!
