There is nothing I like better than steeplechasing and have been looking forward to this race for weeks as soon as it got warm. My date backed out on me at the last minute but my friend Julie went to the races with me since her son, Kevin, is the official race bugler.
Kevin's friend Becky hung around with us too and we got this picture while I was telling a dirty joke:
My friend Ken Furlong has been an outrider for the races for years. I've known Ken for years when he used to ride for trainer Frank Whiteley Jr. and Mr. Whiteley, who HATED reporters, used to let me just hang around his barn.
The June Tradition!
