My longtime friend former trainer Bob Rose was elated with the jumps win of Tamara McSorley's Lune de Caro in the first at Saratoga on Wednesday. So this well done video of jockey A.P. McCoy certainly tells a story about jockey and the jumps. Wish more people knew what these guys go through to make a living, most of the time it's a love of the sport they are in.

Love your show. I had to apologize on Twitter for posting a chirp about Kane yesterday. I went with "accused" and know better.  I shouldn't even have used it at all until he's been "charged."  My newspaper background brought me to my senses. Until he's been charged, it's not a story IMO. At least I apologized. My longtime friend Rodd William Stowell told me about you. Love your give and take with "Mafia" whomever he may be. Night time radio needs you. Having produced and been on thousands of radio shows I think I know good entertaining radio when I hear it. Night time radio, at least here in New Orleans area, is simply void after you go off the air. Wish that were not so because I love sports talk radio.

Newcomers to racetrack microphones should listen and watch this tape as John Gibson calls the 1948 Golden Gate Handicap.  John did an awesome impression of a great race caller named Harry Henson. I considered both of these guys friends. Make note there is none of this crapola we hear over and over these days, likd "off the lead" in this call of John Henry. Wow is this refreshing.  Everybody, for reasons I cannot understand, seems compelled to copy the style of Trevor Denman. But in my opinion, you should put your own ideas to work when race calling. When Roy Shudt called the harness races, you knew it was Roy for lots of reasons. I thoroughly enjoyed taking a step back in the hourglass to listen to big John Gibson, who was very good at his trade of race announcing. Good original race callers are hard to find these days, and that's a shame. Henson ranks on my all-time best list of announcers. I think my late friend Joe Hernandez was the best. He had tempo. The Latin made chills go up and down your spine when he'd simply say: "They're they go!"  Then Joe would wait several seconds before he mentioined the first horse. Hernandez had tempo, as did Henson and Gibson, none of this garbage that clutters most of today's race callers. You may disagree, and that's everyone's right, but I maintain the art of calling horse races has gone in the wrong direction. My longtime friend Eddie Burgart, the voice of Los Alamitos, brought his own style to quarter horse racing. He is, without a doubt, the best quarter horse announcer to ever call races. He's forced to be quick of mind, which he is, his calls are acutely correct, and he seldom misses calling it right at the wire. So my wish is these newcomers who want to be at the microphone some day, develop their own styles. The runaway copycat announcing ot this day and age finds me hitting the mute a majority of the time.

Listen to the call Joe Hernandez makes of Round Table. He was, without a doubt, the best race caller of my time. Nobody could make the hair stand up on your back like my friend Joe. Nobody!

Hopefully I will be able to continue bringing something constructive to the table in the wonderful world of horse racing.  I continue to research illegal drug use not only in horse racing but in sports in general.  Like it or not, HGH and designer drug issues are still very much with us.  As soon as I return from California I will continue to follow Fairgrounds meet in New Orleans.  Last year marked my last effort at rating the coming three-year-olds.  I'll leave that up to someone else.

Amen to that.  Talked with longtime handicapper this morning about the image of Louisiana, the state where I am now living in.  It's not good when you slap the hand of someone brazen enough to use a lethal drug.  But why should we be surprised.  Louisiana is the state where the maligned former executive director of the California Horse Racing Board was gainfully employed at the Fairgrounds last season.  Roy C. "Do Nothing" Wood is about as bad as it gets.  Believe me because I covered this guy when he was doing next to nothing in California.  Louisiana?  They also welcomed with open arms the biggest rule breaker in the history of horse racing--Pat "Break The Rules" Valenzuela.  And yes, I think the last time I looked one of the major factions of the Louisiana horsemen's association was serving time in jail.
