Do You Remember The Goodtimes

Do you remember the goodtimes and if you do, what was it that embedded it in your mind that it couldn't get any better than that. I'll leave this open and hope it doesn't get hijacked into a mudslinging affair.

The line-ups for the mutuels at Greenwood were so long you had to get in line 10 minutes before post to get a win bet. Then if you wanted a place bet you had to get in another line. The place was full of smoke & stunk of beer..........but we loved it!

Frank I was hoping it wouldn't talk too long for someone to bring up Greenwood. Many of my great memories were at Greenwood and all of the characters.

Greenwood was where I claimed the mare Brenda May and when I got to her Cowboy Curran had sliced her up pretty good. Then and there she was going to get turned out and freshened up. After I got her right she did real good for me for almost two years then I lost her to a virus, never really got over that but we move on.

Pompano Park in the 60's and 70's. The place to be.
Haughton, Dancer, Miller, Castleton Farm, Sholty, Beissinger, Popfinger, Baldwin, Nickells, And a sour old bastard named Gene Sears(Brian's grandpa).

I was stabled next to Gene at Pompano around 1980. I thought he was a nice old guy, not at all sour. He had a good laugh at Howard Beissinger yelling at me for getting my horse too close to his Castleton paddock where one of his colts was turned out. Howard was sour not Gene.

Bret Hanover in the 1965 Messenger and Cane at Yonkers and Roosevelt. Betting lines a mile long. Never thought racing would end up like it is today.

in 1991  I had a dream I won big in a race and was so happy I gave my uncle 50 bucks . The next day or a couple days later I hit for 950 bucks on a 40-1 shot parked the mile at Northville driven by Charles Peter who didnt race there much , he ran second where I had him the most in gimmicks, I gave my uncle a fifty dollar bill and he rarely every said thankyou but did that time.
