But IIRC he also was slated to call at Oaklawn Park starting with their next meet. Will he be able to work there AND be a full-time caller at Los Al? :?
What happened to the Goof?

Pretty certain Vic is still the Oaklawn guy.
In the off season he's quite the tournament player and I think he's dipping his toes back in the jock agent business, Tyler Baze?

Curious, with the final days of Eddie B's tenure ending behind the mic at LosAl and Michael Wrona being named the heir in waiting....
Has anybody here ever heard Wrona call a quarterhorse race?

The reason I ask is because my memory of Wrona's brilliance is that of a storyteller during a race with a few well timed quips thrown in along the way. Not sure how he'll do in 17 seconds from beginning to end.

I have - at least via livestream from Turf Paradise and Arizona Downs. QH and TB race calls (good ones) require a different set of skills, to be sure, but have no fear - Mr. Wrona has mastered both. "Racing" - and then shorter stories, fewer quips. :)

Maybe SA and Los Al should trade so we can see how many voices Frank can get in during a 300 yd. race.
