Del Mar Online Racing Community
Chat about horses, racing, and the industry.
My wife was kind enough to allow me to take an entire day away from the family to participate in the free, on-line Haskell handicapping contest (which, I was competitive in for the first half of the tourney - but, fell apart late). I was watching the races on TVG when a trivia question was posed? I believe the question was identifying the last horse (or, only horse) to win both the San Diego Handicap and Pacific Classic...to which, I responded with Skimming in 2001. I was lucky enough to answer the question correctly via e-mail - and, be "picked" from the winning responses.
Thanks to Mary for the offer of free seats and admission if I can travel from Idaho to Del Mar to participate in the poker tourney. I am looking at options...hopefully I can travel down and meet some of the folks off the forum, as well!
If I can't make it - I'm going to check with TVG and see what the options are if I can't travel down.
Be careful though & double check `em. Otherwise you may be making a sidetrip through Brooklyn.
If wishes were horses then beggars would ride-
& If dirt were dollars we'd all be in the black
I'm still deliberating whether I will come to Del Mar for the poker tourney - but, I contacted TVG and the charity organizer today to ask if I could transfer my seat to one of my acquaintances from the Del Mar Fan Forum ...to my surprise...I was told that the seat was non-transferable(sorry JDinSD77...knew you wanted to participate) . I also expressed that I'd gladly return the seat to TVG for re-issue if they'd agree to post my "check-mark selections" on air for on one card on a Saturday or Sunday at either Del Mar or Saratoga...to which I received no response.
I guess you win a prize on TVG and if you can't use it, you're out! Kinda like my Pick 4 selections...close, but no Cigar!
