About Me

Me

Name: Jen

Age: 29

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.

    Saw the site in your comment on Steve Crist’s DRF blog. Glad I came to take a look. Enjoyed my visit a lot.
    Hope you make it to the Spa as soon as possible, you owe it to yourself. Truer words never spoken than your closing words of wisdom, and I share your sentiments totally.

    A few years ago I moved away from the 3-horse boxes and started betting exacta and trifecta wheels… it’s even better if you like to bet a Tri:

    A, B WITH A, B, C WITH A, B, C, D = $8 and you pick up an extra horse in third.
