As promised, let’s get a look at some birthday dinner photos . . .
Here I am with Chef Louise, along with our farmer’s market bounty. . .KABOOM.
The menu: cucumber salad, corn on the cob, farmer’s market pasta salad, kale salad from the garden, smoked chicken and ribs. . .awwww yeeeea. . .
The whole gang in our backyard, which Susan, Louise, Mark and Kristin transformed into Saratoga’s nicest restaurant.
My brother Mark, whose reponsibilities included grilling, photo-taking, and sommelier-ing.
Me with my ice box cake and the true genius behind the event, the incomparable Suz (Clyde Van Pelt, aka CVP, looks on)
BANKROLL PLAY OF THE DAY:
Race 11: $100 win on #2 WISE DAN
I’m keeping it simple and betting on the fastest horse in the best race of the day. Sure, he could get beat and there are a few unknowns but I feel the talent and figure edge make him one of the more likely winners on the card, and the depth of the field mean maybe we can get 2-1.
