I can't tell you the last time I saw a thoroughbred horse race in person. It's also been at least 25 years since I saw the trotters in action.
Some kind of horse race fan I am, right?
Sure, in this business you must pay some attention to the pile of stories that we're deluged with when it comes to a major race. I'll even take time to spend two minutes in front of the tube to see the telecast of one of the Triple Crown battles.
From that point of view, I'm not oblivious to the history of such horses like Secretariat, Affirmed (the last Triple Crown winner in 1978) and War Admiral.
Now, we have the movie "Seabiscuit," with all the commercial promos and actor interviews popping up on various channels.
I even made mention to my wife that the movie looks enticing, one we'll have to watch when it comes out on DVD (I usually don't put up with going to the theater).
