I've been digging through my computer and finding old videos, and here's a good one...

Red Bow Tie
Western Ideal
Day In A Life
Tune Town
BJ's Whirlwind

Best,
EW

BTW- If anyone has videos out there, let's share them -- I'm in the process of pulling some of my old Chicago stuff off of tapes, so that'll be neat.  Let me know if you have things to share, and I'll host them!

That sure beats the Forest Skipper/Facon Seelster match race back in 85/86.

WOW thanks.
That brings back memories.
I may have my years wrong but I think Campbell might have won 7 races on that card.

How do you do that?


I have a video card that allows me to input video to my computer.

The other way is to burn the tapes to a DVD (if you have access to one of those), and then rip the video off the DVD.

If you want any hardware suggestions or anything like that, let me know...

Best,
EW

EW, let me know if you run across the 1993 or 1994 versions of the USPC raced at Spk.  My two "ponies" dueled mano a mano here for three weeks, with Staying Together besting Bilateral each time.  TC

I have that on VHS -- I'll have to get it on the computer...

Both great races...I was a bigger fan of the 1992 edition was Artsplace, but I know you have the connection to those Wink

My favorite race ever, though (which is the first race I remember) -- Jate Lobell in the 1987 AmNat...making that HUGE move down the backstretch...I remember it because of the roar that the Spk crowd let loose when he brushed.  Just awesome!

Best,

EW, considering I hot walked BOTH Staying Together and Bilateral during that 3 week period, I'll keep that edition as one of my all-time favorites.  That year marked my first visit to the Breeder's Crown races in Canada.  I think the first live Am-Nat I recall attending was possibly Jate Lobell, so that race has sentimental value as well.  TC

I was there live for the jate lobell race. I was in some great seats. Does anybody remember the 1.00 seats at sportsmans. they had names of people who sponsored them. I used to always try and sit in or by the Frank Calabreses seats to watch the races. I loved watching race track rosie come by and try and get in Franks pants. Little did she know the truth of Frank. these were the best seats for viewing the great races. I loved going to sportsmans with my dad and hanging out on a fun friday night. BEST OUTFITS IN THE WORLD WERE THE ONES MADE BY ROSIE !!!!!

John, I was a downstairs habitue who walked out to catch the field going past the 1/2 and into the club turn.  I did sit in those outdoor seats a few times, but Gil would drive me nuts with those "...a driving finish" calls of his, sending us cascading down the stairs into the grandstand for a close-up TV look at the finish.  Most times it wasn't even close.  It took a few years to get it that Gil was more focused on his horse, struggling in 6th, to give the neck or 1/2 length winner -LOL.  We adapted, and would run in to catch the finishes on the monitors if we had a shot at cashing -LOL.  Ah, the good old days indeed.  In the latter years, we would just stay by the paddock and run into the driver's lounge for close races,or sit in there during imperfect weather. Those were VERY profitable years if you had discipline - LOL.  TC

The USPC they are referring to happened at the Big M -- and it was Forrest Skipper versus Falcon Seelster...there may have been a race at Spk, however, not sure as I was 2  Wink

Thank You EW!!

The video is above!  The race turns out to be a little of a bust since Falcon Seelster was eased, but it's still a piece of history!

Forest Skipper vs. Hothead in the U.S. Pacing Championship at Sportsman's.
No match race but a two horse race nonetheless.
Lavern drove the race of his life.
