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.

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.
 
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. 
The National HBPA and its affiliates said they have "zero tolerance" for trainers who use illegal Class 1 and Class 2 substances in racehorses in the wake of about 30 positives for Demorphin in the So...

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.

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!

I knew last night when they said the barn was newly painted and it smelled like it--the crap was going to fly today.  These morons at Belmont have done everything wrong when it comes to this matter.

Story

Currently write a horse racing column on www.pricehorsecentral.com. Am pro-active watch-dog for all sport on the subject of runaway PED abuse. .
Introduction
Most of my life was spent working around or on racetracks from the west coast to the east. I continue to post a horse racing column on www.pricehorsecentral.com. Due to the fact I watch many races on video tape I am able to pass along valuable tidbits around various races for other handicappers.It's not at the same frenzied, methodical tempo of race reviewing I did when publishing Quarter Horse Report or marketing my 900-line "best bets" 900-line. Far from that sort of thing. I just like making a small wager once in awhile. 

Over a long period of time I worked as publicity and advertising director at racetracks. Trainer Ray Priddy, one of the top two-year-old trainers of his time, gave me grass roots exposure to life on the backstretch at Santa Anita Park. I also worked for trainers R.D. Moon and Allen Drumheller, Jr.and Hall of Famer M.E. "Buster" Millerick. 

My background includes managing a thoroughbred farm, jockey agenting, working as a hot walker on the track and doing handicapping seminars. I once managed a breeding farm not far from famed Santa Anita Park, owned by the late Ray Priddy who was considered one of the top trainers of two-year-olds. . I tried my hand at clocking at major SoCal racetracks but never was at the skilled level of such great clockers as John Wilson and Gary Young.  The best jockey I ever worked for as an agent was Jesus Bazan.  For many years I produced and guested on thousands of radio and television shows. 

At the Pasadena Independent Star News I gained respect and a reputation for investigative reporting on illegal drug use. When I broke into the turf writing ranks in the Santa Anita pressbox I was fortunate to be surrounded by big named handicappers Bob Hebert(L.A. Mirror), George Main(L.A. Herald), Mike Mitchell(L.A. Herald) and Ernie Mason who had a syndicate of newspapers. Hyram Schneider, the tall man who wrote for the L.A. Herald, took me under his wing. 

When I broke in as a handicapper for the newspaper we did not have access to printed past performances. We were given "index numbers" and had to look up each horse's last race. That time consuming process was simplified many years ago.  Today's handicappers have it oh so much more easy as they can look at the pp's(past performances) of every horse in a matter of minutes via the electronic medium.

Turf writing greats like Kent Cochran of the Daily Racing Form and Prof Gordon Jones of the L.A. Herald Examiner was covering the circuit. Named Employee Of the Year in 1970 at Saratoga Raceway I worked around a myriad of Hall of Famers in the thoroughbred,harness and quarter horse racing world. 

It was at famed Los Alamitos Race Course where my partner Eddie Burgart and I launched the innovative Quarter Horse Report.  We were the first publication to report on qualifying drills. My byline has appeared in many publications. 

While living in Las Vegas Ralph Siraco and I launched the long running Raceday Las Vegas radio show.  That long running show is still on the air.  

Late in 2010 I moved to Louisiana from Las Vegas where I lived and worked for 11 years. I have five grand children, three in Louisiana, one in Colorado and one in California.  My oldest surviving daughter Irish is married to retired Navy Seal officer Dean Oden.  They reside in Slidell, La., and were survivors of the tragic Katrina storm.  Their oldest daughter Nikki graduated from LSU with a degree in history and now a high school teacher in Slidell, Louisiana..

My oldest daugher Victoria Eves lost her life to alcohol and over the counter drug abuse on Feb., 18, 2007. She was 48.  I guess it's one of the compelling reasons I have continued to be such a critic of enabling sports such as the NFL and the world of professional baseball.  

My son Sean was a skilled auto mechanic who has rebuilt hundreds of vehicles in California.  Unfortunately an auto accident and 25 surgeries later we lost Sean a month shy of his 45th birthday. We also lost our oldest daughter Victoria on February 18, 2007 when she passed away at 49.  

My father Howard Watson Eves was was pioneer of the Independent Garage Owners of America. After moving from Cedar Rapids, Iowa as a young man he operated an automobile repair shop in Pasadena for many years. 

Horse racing continues to be an interest as I remain pro-active on the internet in regard to PED abuse in all of sport.  In May of 2015 I wrote an extensive investigative report on the epidemic-level abuse of cobalt chloride in horse racing, in particular in Australia. This was spurred by my long association with Racing Victoria's chief veterinarian DVM Brian Stewart. 
Bragging rights
Am proud of the investigative reporting I have done in the field of illegal drug use in the world of thoroughbred racing. In 1970 I was named Employee of the Year at Saratoga Harness where I spent 4-1/2 years as p;ublicity and advertising director. Even though I was up close and personal with the likes of Native Diver and many more famous thoroughbreds, the best horse I ever saw run was Swaps owned by Rex Ellsworth. I'm also proud of the long list of sources I have developed over a long period of time. I believe it's not an egotistical label when I claim to be the senior turf writer in these United States. I'm hoping and praying that the once great sport of horse racing gets serious about forming a one body tribunal to deal with the cheats. Since I moved to Louisiana I have become very active with the Northshore Church. My pastor Dr. Larry McEwen is a person who has had a profound impact on my life. I spend a lot of time studying God's word in addition to my other interests.
Work
Occupation
I've been unemployed for some time now. I write a horse racing column on www.pricehorsecentral.com when I have the material. I am pro-active on Twitter, especially on subjects like the NFL, horse racing, and the runaway use of PEDs in all of sport..
Skills
Writing is atop the list. I've found in my later years it keeps the mind alert. My Twitter account has me connecting with more people than at any time in my life.
