I didnt really cash anything aside from day one (which didnt even bring me close to even for the day), but I had a hell of a time and enjoyed each race. I felt bad for Tyler when he wept after each beat (sincerely), I kept wondering how the hell some of these horses were winning and most of all I LOVED the Zenyatta win(even though I had doubts she would do it). I had the misfortune of watching all of the races on the TVG/calracing simulcast online (those of you who female dog about TVG analysts, I hear you loud and clear!), but I still had a wonderful time.
As soon as Zenyatta won and I responded to Juan Lopez's mindless banter in the forum, I fell asleep. I slept until about 2am, woke up and couldnt go back to sleep again. I kept coming back to the forum but was too burnt out to really reply to anything I wanted to. The same thing is happening today.. just really burnt out on all things horse racing.
Anyone else have this feeling? I have never experienced it like this before.. I have a feeling that a lot of people in the dmff are feeling the same way..matter of fact, I know so.
I have many leather-bound books and my apartment smells of rich mahogany...
never really have had a hangover after the BC as much as I use the time after the BC until february to take a break from anything related to racing. Of course with a the exception of a few big race days remaining over seas.
I would be a vegetarian if BACON grew on trees
Other than Thanksgiving weekend when Aqueduct, Churchill and Hollywood Park have some G1s, I only look forward to Japan Cup and Hong Kong International Day for the rest of the year. When the Triple Crown preps start I begin interest again around the same time as the Dubai Carnival and World Cup Night approach. Then English and Irish racing get going and it's on until BC. November - February is down time.
"I'm Winston Wolf. I solve problems."
Stoopid Hollywood Park meeting coming up from greedy industry insiders who plan things.
Unless you need to collect some losing tickets for the IRS, there's no point imho. Just sit back and watch BC replays if you need something to do.
Should just shut it all down, give the ponies a rest, and then be prepared to fight the traffic on Baldwin Ave. the day after Christmas for a 2010 wall calendar, ahhhh it must be heaven.
And remember...Things work out best when you make the best of the way things work out.
I know I was wiped out from this BC. 5 hours sleep Thursday night, 5 hours Friday, getting up early Sunday to get over to SA to buy some closeout BC merchandise all adds up to auto pilot- After getting home & turning on the Charger game, fell asleep on the couch until the start of the night game.
If wishes were horses then beggars would ride-
& If dirt were dollars we'd all be in the black
