Home Track: Arlington Park, and Hawthorne somewhat as well
Favorite Race Track: Arlington and Keeneland
Have you ever been to the KY Derby?: Of course! More than once. The first time was the year my boy Smarty swam home in the mud.
Have you ever been to the Breeders Cup?: No, we couldn’t get tickets the year it was at Arlington.
What was your first BIG race and/or race horse?: I think Sunday Silence in his Derby is the first horse and race I really remember being emotionally invested in. Or Mr. Frisky. Or Fly So Free. Who was the earliest Derby?
Who is your favorite claimer?: That would be Intern, followed by Cheddar (who is no longer in the midwest and who I worry about a lot).
What is your favorite wager?: 3-horse exacta box all the way.
What one track would you really like to visit that you haven’t yet?: It’s a tie between the Spa and Hollywood Park (before it’s gone *sigh*).
Any other words of wisdom?: “I just want them all to come home safe.” I say that before the start of any race that I watch.
