Ron's News Wire


Bloodhorse.com reports that on January 6, 2017 Turfway Park cancelled live racing "due to extreme cold."  It further noted that the plant would remain open for simulcasting for their "Rockin' Dollar Friday" (draft beer and hot dogs go for a buck) and the band, Naked Karate Girls, would still play.
No racing but naked girls performing in extreme cold, what am I missing here?

We get emails, most recently this one:
"I'm Jonathan, I'm interested in buying your Horse, I would love to know if it's still available for sale, also could you tell me the Health/condition of the Horse and as well the last price you are willing to sale it, please send me some photos if you have, i will be waiting to read from you soon with the best rice.
"Best Wishes,
"Jonathan."
Okay, Jonathan, wire us $250,000 and we'll go find you a Horse...

TDN reports that jockey Jose Ortiz will ride at Gulfstream next winter, having missed this winter's portion of the meeting.  "I think this year I should have come, but I was getting married and I'm having a baby so I wanted to stay home one more year."
Well, I should think such a medical miracle does deserve some time off.

February 2017 Additions
The Gunpowder Farms K One King's are three-year-olds now, which is when we begin taking a serious look (and praying a lot) that Gunpowder's gamble and our hopes begin coming to fruition, and on February 11 at Tampa Bay filly Pazzaluna (K One King--Aquapazza, by Stormy Atlantic) showed us a lot of guts and determination winning a 1-1/16 mile MSW turf race.  Of special importance for us is that Gunpowder purchased Aquapazza for K One King's 'Save The Princequillo Line' harem on Ellen's recommendation.  Pedigree highlights include x3 Round Table (Apalachee x2 Poker) and x2 Seattle Slew.
Paid $38.00, $14.00 and $6.20 she did.
