I just wanted to take a quick opportunity to thank Craig Braddick for his visit on Tuesday to Turf Paradise. Craig will be the announcer this summer at Yavapai Downs in Prescott, Arizona and came by on Tuesday to call a couple of races and give the Arizona racing fans a small taste of what they can expect to hear this summer up north.
Craig called the fourth and eighth races on the Tuesday program and if those are any indication, I am sure the folks at Yavapai will be in quite capable hands and will enjoy hearing Craig's voice on a daily basis. Of course, Craig is not new to this race calling business, having called at Arapahoe Park in Colorado and served as a guest announcer at numerous racetracks, including Turfway Park in Kentucky and Mountaineer Park in West Virginia to name a couple.
Craig stayed over an extra day to have a 4&3 whooping administered to him on the links today by yours truly, which made the dinner I won off him all the more tasty. Don't worry, Craig, you will get your chance at redemption once I return to Arizona from Nebraska and pay you a return visit this summer.
Tune in again tomorrow for more from They Are Off. For right now, I am Gone...GOODBYE!
