If you enjoyed Luck last night…

If you caught the HBO preview of their new horse-racing centered Luck last night and enjoyed it as much as I did, you might want to look in our own back yard for a place to play the ponies. Laurel Park is just off I-95 north of the Beltway is just close enough to be intriguing to many and accessible, as well.  Tomorrow afternoon, a horse named Rapid Redux goes for his record twenty-first straight victory.  We asked former Thoroughbred Times reporter Ed DeRosa about Rapid Redux, and he said, “He’s a lower level horse so it’s more a blue-collar tale of consistency than a superstar deal. Drama every day though!”

Doors open tomorrow at 11:00am, admission is a scant $3, and post time is 12:35.

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
