Special Thanks to LLT

I wanted to recognize and thank our own Larry La Tour for helping out a group of 6 nickel and dime players last week. We were heading to Saratoga so I contacted Larry to see if he would be able to offer any help on his picks. Even though he was in Vegas he still took the time to send us horses that he liked for the two days we were going to the track. Without any idea who I was he still very generously texted several horses that he liked to me. Most people would have never responded or told me to get lost. Larry took extra time to try and help us, and we texted back and forth all week. What a great guy he is. So thanks again Larry. By the way his best bet won at 9-2.

Thanks for bumping this, Dell. It was nice yet unnecessary for Don to give me a shout out. I felt bad for him and his Ohio buddies seeing as the 2 days they targeted for Saratoga both came up wet. They deserved better. I remember tagging 3 "Best Bets" while they were there only to lose to of them to surface switch scratches. At least the lone runner to load the gate (Celtic Chaos) didn't disappoint us at $13.00 or so. Thanks again for pointing me to this, and thank you Don!

Larry was kind enough to pause the festivities and brave the worst of today's rain for an all-too-brief stop and chat at the Big Red Spring. I'm hoping I was able to repay his years of sharing his wisdom with my humble pick in the fifth. Super good dude, as expected.

You are too kind, sir! G-Bob and I did get acquainted for a few minutes last Friday and it didn't take long to figure out the "G" stood for gentleman. Our meet was after the 3rd per Big Red Spring tradition and if I'm not mistaken G-Bob did more than tout the winner of the 5th. Seems to me he may have caught the pick 5 for $800.00+ if I recall his spread in the 4th correctly. Hope I'm right, Bob. I also hope to see you again one day at the Spa!
