Atlantic City Race Course
« on: June 11, 2023, 10:16:18 PM »
As a young man in the 70's I loved racing there!
Pompano Park training side in the winter and ACRC in the spring. What could be better for a young single guy with no commitments.
Lots of barns.
Lots of area.
The beach not far away.
Haughton, Dancer, Miller, O'Brien all had stables there of their young horses.
A big good track kitchen full of trainers and grooms for breakfast and lunch.
I won a 2 year old pace there on night where all four colts in the  picture ended up as sires in NZ.
I asked the girl from the program dept for a date.
She laughed and said "Arn't you gay".
What a blow to my ego!
I said "NO".  So then I had to prove it to her.
That was good for my ego!

I am just an old horse trainer still going around in circles. Sometimes Fast. Sometimes Half-Fast.

Loved Atlantic City Raceway.
One Sunday three or four of us are bar hopping on The Boardwalk.
A (Gentleman) stops us and asks"
"What are you boys looking for?"
"I can get you White, Black, Gray, or Grizzly"

"So whats your pleasure??

It was a fun town those days. When that race meet was over we got more rest at night.
