Give a Man a Horse; He Will Race It. Unless it is Sick.

Two Sunday notes: 1) Check this out. We have been racing horses for centuries and it shows. It's what we do. These guys are probably racing for 40 bucks and a pitcher of beer.

2) Somebeachsomewhere is sick and scratched from tomorrows Matron at Dover. What a shame. I heard Dover was planning some good things and would have had a great crowd for him.

Note: Do you want to know what those thoroughbred folks are thinking when they watch harness? Well Valerie will tell you :)

OK, I don't know if it makes economic sense and I have never been to Bermuda, but apparently there is some interest in harness racing in Bermuda. We have a tourist destination with no racetracks. I wonder if anyone thought of bringing pari-mutuels to the island?
