Re: The Reading Meet HISTORY

Earl,

Thank you for posting Randy's great "History of Reading." I remember Kinetic Concepts and the Yahoo SVX Club ( known as the early days). Once again I will bring the "Message 40 Gremlin" and the Meet Monster" to the Reading Meet plus a bountiful supply of Italian pastry. (: yum yum)

I came across this jewel the other day. This is Ben Rowley, the "founder" and originator of the Reading meet as he appeared at Reading I n 2000.

He's standing there as if to say, "Look what I did!"




Looking forward to seeing y'all this weekend.

Re: The Reading Meet HISTORY

Hello Mr. Kentucky,

Let's stop thinking & talking about our favorite cars for a moment. I want to find out from an expert (you of course) "What in the world is happening to Triple Crown" horse racing this year. First the Derby is screwed up by the stewards. Now the Preakness has a jockey-less horse. It's bad enough that they are trying to design self-driving cars but self racing horses is going too far. What will they be trying to for the Belmont? Will Ron and Rip-M-Off industries be trying out their new "Box-O-Oats Faster Food Treats" for the horses, or will the jockeys be running without horses?

It could follow Grey Hound Racing. Drugs, Drugs and drugs and electric impulse units and the ill treatment of animals. I have children, grand children and geat grand children, all seriously involved in the equestrian scene as girls. Its will not happen in that area.
