I am going to be taking a week off from blog posts to get my affairs in order as I begin my new job at Turf Paradise as the track announcer there. I will be returning with a new blog post on Friday, October 2 (Opening Day at Turf Paradise) which will be focusing on the Breeders' Cup Preview Day at Belmont Park the following day.

I am looking forward to starting my new adventure at Turf Paradise and am anticipating a prosperous tenure there. I do want to take a moment to wish Frank Miramahdi well in his new adventure at TVG Network. I have every confidence that Frank will be outstanding in his role and look forward to catching his TVG work for a long time. Congratulations to Frank!!!

Tune in next Friday for more from They Are Off. For right now, I am Gone...GOODBYE!

Congrats on the Turf Paradise gig. Do you do any impressions? I have heard your calls from Sam Houston and they are very good, so as long as you can do Michael Chamberlain well you should do great. What Turf Paradise lacks in top class races it has in spades as far as winter weather. Every few years I take in a few days at Turf Paradise; it is a very nice facility.

Be sure to stop by and say hello when you come out this winter. I must say I am looking forward to everything about returning to Phoenix.

Mike - As a horseplayer at Tup for over 15 years welcome to my second home!

Just be yourself and even though it will only be you, me and few others in the upper level grandstand on some weekdays call it like it's a Grade I!
