    Yes. I'm planning on spending a few hours there Saturday morning. Eating breakfast, making my bets and then watching from my recliner.

    I live 15 miles from Del Mar and am driving to Vegas for the weekend if that tells you anything. I’m not playing Friday but will throw my picks in for Saturday

    As quiet as Sam Houston is, it can get crazy during the big meets. Hard to get to betting windows etc. My typical plan is to go either the night before or the morning of the big races. They offer a $2.99 breakfast special on Saturday's that is surprisingly edible. I bring my laptop, finish up my handicapping, eat breakfast, place my bets and head home to watch in the comfort of my home.

    I am lucky enough that the online wagering is allowed here in IL. So I don't need to mess with that.

    I do go to live racing of course but that is dying here cause the state allowed Dotty's type gambling locations (if cities allow it) but no slots at a track.

    The insane thing is the damn OTBs can have them.

    No OTB in Texas, just live tracks. They do now have online betting apps but you can only use them when connected to the track's wi-fi i.e. when you're at the track.

    Soon it could all be moot though, because the biggest champion of horse racing is retiring from the legislature so who knows what's going to happen?

    Marathon is always a tough race for me because it is so unusual for American racing.

    $2 win 7 Hard Aces

    I don't mind Larry Collmus and his call, I think he is pretty good.

    That said I wish they let Trevor have the call on NBC....

    Winner!

    I was worried about battle of midway. That was a good race.

    Collmus is ok. I think he loses his cool from time to time and it throws him off because he’s too excitable. I still think Durkin is the best BC announcer

    Collmus does get too screamy a little like gus Johnson.

    Durkin is great. Though I always got bothered with some calls when upsets would be triple crown hopefuls.

    Though this is great.




    This is a close second.




    Juvenile turf.

    $4 6 masar

    $2 ex box 4/2
