Who's all heading out to SA, and do we have any shippers coming to town for their first vist to SA?
I know I might be in the minority, but I happen to like the 2day BC format. I'm sure those who have spent a lot of money on airfare like the idea of having a couple of days full of good racing rather than just Saturday and then back home, or another card like we seen last Sunday.
I have it on good authority that the legendary (in his own mind anyway <insert smiley face> ) Let-It-Ride Mike will be in attendance Saturday to pass along his real-time body language plays. If there was ever a day that needed him, this will be the the day.

I agree with you 117% about the two day format - best idea since Pizza. You nailed the reasons.
Btw, is this year's at HollyPark and how do I get there if I'm driving up from PB?
Also, if anyone wants to meet a real live tout at Pepper's Thursday night, lemme know. I love the Chicken Fajitas at that joint.
Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.

Related events: Go to the whip!: Fans in attendance Friday and Saturday are invited to participate in a virtual jockey contest in a designated area near the Kingsbury Fountain on the grandstand side between the paddock and the racetrack. A 3-D software program on 41-inch plasma screens will enable fans to ride their favorite 2009 Breeders' Cup Classic contender in a realistic simulation of the race. Trophies will be awarded to fans with the fastest times.
Vince, i'm counting on seeing you strut your stuff in this contest. ( no mention of jockey ineligible )
I know you have mounts on both days, but I want to see how you would get MTB past Zenyatta's big ass.
I'll be there on Sat, got some reasonably priced tickets on ebay up high in "impaired view" area of section J (row 29, seats 1 & 2 if anyone wants to visit) There were an assortment of Sat.tickets avaialble a bit over 50% of face; if you were willing to take both Fri & Sat you could get them at 40% of face or less. I'd like to run into Fredo and the gang, will try to PM him with my cell number so he can call when he's situated.
Any advice on parking if you don't have a parking permit? Back in 2005 or whenver it was I found a lot across the street from the clubhouse side of the track near Huntington Ave. A pain to get to but getting our\t was relatively easy. Any hot tips from people who went last year?
May be an interesting concept for a jock in the Classic to make several practice runs first. And since MTB & Bo-RAIL will try to hug the inside & jungle boy will take Z wide, I don't think Z will have to throw her ass out to cause MTB to check. <<00>>
Seriously on parking- DO NOT try to park @ in the Arcadia City Hall parking lot. I think last year it was taped off w/ the police cadets keeping people out,( they wouldn't even let me WALK through .....) but if it's not, Arcadia PD will be looking to pass out as many tickets as possible to any vehicle that doesn't have a city sticker. Same thing at the mall. Arcadia has been cracking down on parking aka timed spaces to get extra income & now they have rent a cops chalk tires. County Park by the Tennis Courts- I don't think there's a way PD can keep anyone from parking there & walking over to SA as that's a public area. For anyone coming from the Pasadena area-there is a shuttle from the Pasadena Gold Line train station to the track, website says it'll run every 45 minutes.
If wishes were horses then beggars would ride-
& If dirt were dollars we'd all be in the black
