Ecclesiastes 3:8 said it best: ‘A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace’.
Optional: The Byrds added the rest.
And speaking of Birds, why should an Iggle ‘fly on the road to victory’? Maybe they fly on a ‘route to victory’, but not on a ‘road’. After all, you don’t fly on a road. Faulty fight song!
Free ones: Rundown…
Aqueduct 7, 8, 9
Gulfstream Park Proper 7, 8, 9
Santa Anita 4, 7, 8
Pay-side (Weekday/Weekend): Today…
Hawthorne 4, 7
Mahoning 6, 8
Tampa 7, 8, 9, 10
Turf Paradise 4, 8
Today’s Stakes Pageantry: Turf Paradise 4 on the pay-side. Sadly, the sixth at Santa Anita seems a shootout between the two obvious horseys. Regrets!
Yesterday’s Activity: Bad days all around for Chip Kelly, Affluenza Family, Geo. Pataki, ‘Tuesday Sniping’ (the last of which went nil-rainout-nil). Hoo-boy. At least with the first three, their races have been run; the fourth of them will continue in perpetuity in defiance of Ecclesiastes 3:8! Now what? We might need a restorative and recuperative stay at Minnie’s Haberdashery soon. Yeah, that’ll learn us!
P.S. Ecclesiastes 3:6 says that there indeed ‘is a time to get’. How long, o lord, how long?
Nocturnal Submission: Sifting through the wreckage…
Thank you. Best wishes. Goodbye. So long, Chip.
