Oh Rosie, Don’t You Do That To The Boys

I showed up at the backstretch for the Rosie Napranvik press conference. I’ve been following her career since she regularly rewarded bettors at the Maryland tracks. Everyone back home wishes her well on this milestone. But since other media outlets covered the entire presser, I found others to talk to.

*Chinatown quote speaks volumes to me.

**Rosie is a Joan Armatrading song.

Both of these interviews are outstanding. Thank you.

It’s for the love of the horses, great talk with this owner. I agree, horses do have a positive energy or something about them that is relaxing.
