One of my greatest bits of shame is that I lived in St. Louis for three years…and have still never been to Fairmount Park.
Better late than never, they say, and I am fixing that deficiency this week. Paul and I are hitting the road again, this time to Collinsville. Over at Picks and Ponderings, I have written full analysis of the seven-race card.
I am so excited to go down to Fairmount. For one, there are a few horses I remember from Chicago running tomorrow (including McGuire Road, who I hope has calmed down since last season, since he was almost He’s a Council levels of naughty in the paddock the one time I saw him). In addition, seeing a new track is always exciting. I have heard wonderful things about Fairmount…that it’s small, laid back, unpretentious. And, given that I am far more for ponies than pageantry, I am expecting to really like it there.
