Re: Race-caller Stone not returning to NYRA

What does that say about the GGF gig that being the back-up announcer at Aqueduct in the winter is a better career move? NYRA is the best racing product in the country, overall.

Re: In Memoriam 2016

Oh no. RIP. Owsley raced in NY. She was one of the first racers I fell in love after I saw her races. Sad she is gone. Too bad the pics didn't save. This is an email I sent to Stone Farm on 5/25/2010. Owsley was a terrific racer...fleet-footed and courageous. :cry: Barbara has shared photos with you...

Re: Waiting for news on ...

Cuantos hadn't won a race since 10/14. He had 4 long layoffs and ran one race between each of the 4 layoffs. Every one of the 4 layoff races were dreadful :twisted: ...until yesterday... when he died on track in a horrific breakdown.

Re: This forum/site for sale

I can't believe I can now log in again after 2.5 years.

Thank you to Kurenai for stopping up to manage TBC.

I found this forum in 1996/1997 and now I can post as well as read!

Thank you to Victoria for all her hard work and diligence over the past...almost 20 years.
