I can’t believe we’re at the end of another season at The Big Fresno Fair. The races were great, but educating people about the sport I’m so passionate about drives me. If I did not know how wonderful people behind racing are, and didn’t know how hard they work in this industry, my opinion would be different.
I was amazed to see how many new people came out this year and were interested in learning some of the intricacies of the game. With the great weather and great athletes roaming around the grounds and paddock, it made for a great time for friends to share or a fun family activity. And hopefully I helped people make a buck or two.
I believe that the people who don’t understand horse racing, with opinions of animal abuse and such, will see a different side — the side I see — if they become educated about the sport. I’m always willing to chat and answer any questions via email at Win@RobbiesPicks.com.
It has been an honor and a privilege to share my knowledge with everyone. I sincerely appreciate all of you who have read my column even once. I take my hat off and truly thank each of you.
