Some Belated Beach

- With all the action in Albany and Santa Anita over the last week, didn't get to the win by Somebeachsomewhere in the Messenger at Yonkers. So I wanted to do so, especially since I am now, at their kind invitation, a full-fledged, dues-paying (as soon as I mail this check) member of the U.S. Harness Writers Association. Well, at least some people recognize talent when they see it!

The Messenger was a true test for a champion, starting from the outside six post on a sloppy track. Little Brown Jug winner Shadow Play was allowed to walk the second half in 29 seconds flat, and the Beach had to take him on first over in a driving windswept rain. Great finish in a final quarter of 27 4/5 in the tough conditions, check it out.

Gutty win and a nice $4 exacta! Typical Yonkers chalkfest. You could have parlayed it into a few rounds of penny slots.
