So, I'm coming out of the ocean after a morning swin, and start to wipe the salt water from my eyes. Then I saw her. Was I DREAMING!!!
Just found out that my nephew, Trevor McCarthy, is riding Lady of Gold in the 9th race at Saratoga today (post time 5:26 p.m. ET). It’s a $90,000 Allowance/Optional Claiming race and he’s the 3-1 morning-line favorite in an incredibly evenly-matched field. Thanks to DL for the shout out. Now back to the trip. So, we are at a gorgeous, funky little hotel on the ocean, and had a great dinner, smoked halibut, and a Bailey's creme brûlée for desert. Back to the room, watched some baseball highlights, and off to dream land. Or so I thought. The couple next door is having a ferocious argument on their balcony next to us, and the dude is CRYING his eyes out. Now, believe me, I have nothing against a man showing his feelings, but NOT at 2:30 in the FREAKING morning. Need help again. Do I knock on the door??? Just scream over and tell them to shut the hell up, or just wait it out??? Tough decision. Apparently, the dude was getting dumped, and could not handle it. Then saw the love birds in the morning and can understand why. She looked like the gorgeous surfer babe we had in the Ecks & Bacon window, while he was a full-bearded scruffy mountain man. Plus he's a CRY BABY!!!
Didn't have any action yesterday, didn't have to press any buttons.
