I slept in this morning and read your post before the coffee was done!
On cup 2 and after a re-read...... I’m looking at the news with Governor Andrew Cuomo ranting about New Yorkers not taking social distancing seriously and that the National Guard will be used in DC to keep space between the Cherry Blossom wanderers.....

Calder did race on Christmas & New Years Day for many years.

I as well once had that empty non racing feeling once upon a time but not on Christmas. It was on Dark Tuesday’s when NYRA ran 6 days a week year round and real horseplayers played horses 300 plus days a year. Yeah you could bet Fingers on Tuesday’s during their season, Maryland and Keystone- Philly Park- Parx or God forbid the Jug Head afternoon card at Yonkers! Usually it was fool around with a few C,D track races or go visit your favorite goomah bartender.....

If there was a lock down via a pandemic in those days? I would have definitely found Governor Mario Cuomo in Albany and presented a case for the Albany Tele-Theatre being an essential business.

No buddy, I don’t frequent our favorite restaurant much any more either. Eleven Spa days last year, the past 3 years total to maybe 38 ish, a number I would do every year out of 40 for many. I was down to 50-60 days a year, Saturday’s, big days with my handle plummeting every year.

This past weekend was an all time low. I did some microwave capping (where is BBB)
on the LA Derby card but never pulled the trigger on a bet.... I guess a September Derby, the real possibility of not having a Spa meet or a July Travers just doesn’t get the blood flowing here.

Good luck on your virtual TG Board Derby, I guess you could compare that to cyber sex..... That does nada for blood flow here as well! 😂
