Re: Goodbye, Burt Reynolds

Good ol' Burt. No pretense there. Said what was on his mind, much to the chagrin of many I'm sure. I used to enjoy seeing him on Johnny Carson - funnier than hell.
And Deliverance - an absolute masterpiece. He found his niche and filled it well. RIP Burt.

Re: Horrible Names For Horses

A filly named Slimey broke her maiden this evening at Indiana Grand. What makes it worse is that she comes from a big family. Third dam is Words of War, Storm Cat also on the dam side. She's by Quality Road. Now that's pretty bad. Could be named after Oscar the Grouch's pet worm who makes those wei...

He doesn't qualify as being a "War Horse" for his race record, but not sure where else to post this. Desani's Chance (Leroidesanimaux x Mary Linoa), a 10 year old gelding, broke his maiden today at Arlington. He returned from a seven year layoff in July. We were watching him closely today to see ho...

I'd like to see a huge race from Gunnevera, and Sunny Ridge too. I think most of us here have a big soft spot for Patch - hope he does well!

Swamp Rat is racing today at Saratoga: good Lord, i will never understand how someone can do that to a horse: what a horrible and dreadful name. i have a theory that horses often live up to, or down to their names. Maybe not so crazy. Anyone with an even passing interest in drag car racing will rem...

With a salute to the Temptations and their hit, "Papa Was A Rollin' Stone", comes this little Creative Cause filly, Papawasarollinroan. I like it. She races tomorrow (8/30/18) at Presque Isle Downs in Race 1.
