From leg up aboard Unbridled Isabel the number 1 of the second race Terry was all business. Cheers from not only me but everyone around the paddock his only focus was totally on the race at hand and who would expect anything different from this professional.
It was one excited crowd that showed up Friday night to see this native hometown jockey of Hazel Park return to the sport of thoroughbred racing. I think even more so for those of us who have worked this industry as well for we know, once horses are in your blood they never leave.

March 1, during the 4th race when his mount named Syeshacat a three year-old filly had a clear lead inside the quarter-pole, when she broke down. Her jockey, Terry D.

Red Wings set the record Tuesday evening to a sell out crowd with 21 straight home wins that began on Nov. 5.

There would be no way in my mind that these words could ever be apologized for. Williams already attempted to do exactly that after ESPN pulled his intro spot for last night’s Monday Night Game. Saying in part: claiming he was simply “misunderstood” when he compared Barack Obama to Adolf Hitler.
Then added “Every time the media brings up the tea party it’s painted as racist and extremists – but there’s never a backlash – no outrage to those comparisons.
Gee Hank I wonder why? Your words seemed pretty self-explanatory.

Jerry Campbell wants a ton of money from the HBPA upfront. HBPA lawyer is looking into the legalities of it all. And Pinnacle won’t guarantee a thing even if $$$ is received. Opening the door for Lawsuits from Horsemen.
CLOCKER AVAILABLE: There will be a clocker available at Pinnacle Race Course on Saturday and Sunday beginning Saturday April 24,2010 between 8:00am and 11:30am. In order, to assist our horsemen and women during this stressful period, the HBPA has agreed to pay for the cost of the clocker. Hope this offers some relief.
