I remember those days well. Went to the "Big A" at least twice a week. I thought it might have been the best jockey colony ever. They hardly ever cancelled a card due to weather. LOL! The winter meet was always my favorite time to head out to the track. The inner dirt track always was speed favoring and the early splits were always quick. Speed horses cut the corner on the far turn and opened up in the lane. LOL!

Towtruck, you got some great memories like i do. I graduated South Shore HS, Kingsborough, and the Brooklyn College. I made a lot of friends from Sheepshead Bay. I loved Joe's Clam Bar and Roll N Roster. I hear it's still pretty expensive to buy a house in that area.
I went to school with the Randazzo's. Prinni passed away not long ago.R&R still rocks! I love Stella Maris Bait and Tackle still at the end of the fishing boats.Fat Robert across the street from SS high, a great Deli!
Wherever your going i came back already!
