Default VERY informative Q & A on racing...

go to the newyork times.

click on sports

click on horse racing

the sunday magazine piece on ernest dahlman is there -- it's a GREAT read and it's link is in this forum -- but even better...

...is the Q & A from his readers. Some of the questions are truly informative and others are comprised by fans like this one, who caught what is so great about sports, baseball and horse racing...

"Mr. Dahlman, I always enjoy reading about people attending the races with their dads. I spent thousands of wonderful hours with my dad at the track and when he was in the hospital with cancer, he still read the DRF every single day and bet OTB. One funny story about him: He bought me an OTB account and put $20 in it for my high school graduation in '74. Two days later I'm making my first bet and the operator tells me the account has only $14. I'm all upset--someone has gotten my password, I tell my dad. Sheepishly, he responds: "I made a few bets." I made him get his own account. Regards, andy"
