Bobble Heads, Mobile Wagering, and History Lesson

Psst, looking for a John Campbell bobble head?  Horse Rescue United has an online auction going on in Facebook.  In addition to the bobble heads (there are two up for auction), other items are available for bidding as well.  The auction does close tonight so if interested in the bobble heads or any other items, just 'Like' Horse Rescue United on Facebook and check out the items up for auction.  To bid, just put your name and bid amount on the listing.  Preferred payment method is Paypal.

Horse Rescue United is a 501(c)3 charity which rescues horses, primarily standardbreds.

It's now legal to use mobile devices on racetrack property to make wagers according to a law signed by Governor Christie.  When the actual roll out will take place remains to be seen.  If you have been holding off on getting a smart phone, here is another reason why you should consider getting one.

Arguably, the greatest pacer that ever lived was Dan Patch.  Thanks to some friends for pointing this video out on YouTube; a photo tribute to Dan Patch.

If you want to learn more about Dan Patch, may I suggest the book "Crazy Good, The True Story of Dan Patch, The Most Famous Horse in America" by Charles Leershan.  The book is now available in both paperback and hardcover editions.

While we are talking about all-time greats, here is a video tribute to Greyhound aka "The Grey Ghost", perhaps the greatest trotter of all times.
