Old PP's? For a real hoot how 'bout looking at some old ThoroGraph sheets! NOT the beautiful computer printed .pdf files of today. But the "rough and hand-marked by Jerry Brown" versions of yesteryear. For sentimental reasons, I've kept a few. For example:
I have an A.P INDY sheet going into the 1992 Kentucky Derby indicating he won the 1992 Santa Anita Derby with a 7.5! [Today that's VERY VERY S-L-O-W!]
I have an UNBRIDLED sheet indicating he won the 1990 Florida Derby with a 8.5!
No doubt: These slices of paper with Jerry's penmanship should be in the Smithsonian Institution.
