An absolute wild and crazy day yesterday. But a fantastic Saturday and Sunday at the Spa again even while wondering when the Water Slide and Ferris Wheel were going to be unveiled to our $2 betting, sweatshirt seeking, Mickey Mouse type crowd of 40k plus. No matter. As I told almost everyone yesterday, I look forward to seeing all of you again next year in the backyard. If I didn't tell you, I'm saying it now and hope everyone makes it back for another year healthy and happy. If at another track sooner we run into each other, that's great too but certainly a fantastic time at the SPAAA. Richiebee better coordinate with me next year!!! Huge thanks to Uncle Bill who makes it all happen by fighting for the tables each morning.
4 course records broke at the Spa this year.
An inside on dirt that is one to remember going forward (Often dead reportedly but then a horse would win up the rail when a jock would actually go there from time to time)
The start of an empire 6 and essentially the end of a true $2 p6 anywhere (at least NYRA doesn't use a $hit card like Gulfstream does. At least they didn't on their first two mandatory payouts)
Chad and Jose take trainer and jock titles. No shock there.
More supertrainers and less mom and pop operations winning races up there.
Record meet handle but isn't nearly every industry in America growing leaps and bounds faster than horse racing?? This shouldn't be a shocker but rather the rule these days at top of the game. But it isn't.
A spill on the final race in the slop to give PETA some more ammunition.
RIP in Mary Lou.
This is the game today. Regardless of the state of the game on the track, I'll be back next year as many times as I can feasibly get up there. Thanks to every single one of you I spent time with that made it a great time like it has been the past 4 years prior to this.
Good luck to Uncle Bill and his wife along with johnnym and any others with family and property in F-L-A that are about to get 'Caned.
