    Trips to Las Vegas:
    I haven't been in so long, although I grew up at the race track with my Dad.( my first really big pay
    $3600?) it's been so long. So I've booked a seat at the old Clubhouse,,(Silks it's called now?) which I'm not sure is even there anymore. I'm going Sunday. However, I should be going Monday when Super Mario is riding a horse. He took Nyquist to the Kentucky Derby. He's riding BC Day on Monday. I can't even remember how to speed rate...and I'm sure they no longer have live people at the wickets..it's all prob digital gambling. I'm breaking my 3/4 year self imposed not gambling locally, but..hey shit happens. Apparently they even have 500 gaming slots. I don't do local, so any tips...I was such a regular there when I was younger. Does Silks replace the tiered Clubhouse seats?

    Going to the horse races and betting is fun.

    "How to speed rate?" You know way more than me.

    I've never been to Hastings but usually bet on the friskiest of the horse (if I see it before hand), his heritage and the odds. Horse races are just a fun gamble for me. I don't even pretend to understand.
