A great Labor Day weekend so far. The weather has been ideal for strolling through the State Fair Midway, making the annual visit to say “Hi” to the World’s Smallest Woman and pickin’ ponies.

Flying coast to coast last night is tghe excuse for this tardy popst. Unfortunately, today at Timonium the card is filled with small fields which doesn’t offer much value. So trying to find decent ROI is like “trying to make chicken salad out of chicken sh…”. Recapping Day 4 (Friday 31st) selections at the Timonium [...]

What used to be billed as “The 10 greatest days of Summer” now a days is simply known, without all the fanfare as the Maryland State Fair, with 7 of 10 days having live thoroughbred horse racing. It’s sad to think that it’s been nearly a half century since Timonium Fair Ground was the site [...]
