What an amazing individual. And what an amazing picture of an unfortunately dying breed. Frank Angst's story here pretty much says it all, and there's not much to add. I just hope that we who love this game appreciate Charles Cella's vision and how he turned Oaklawn Park into a major Boutique meeting.....in spite of winter weather and no turf course. Go figure!

Go in peace, Charlie. You done good!


Late edit: Just saw Tim's earlier thread. Sorry to step on it.
