There are days when I wonder how I got here and what I’m doing here. Then there are nights when I know why I’m here and what I’m doing here. On a farm, in Virginia, in complete silence, not a light in any direction. 

You've heard of Throw-back Thursday. This is Throw-it Tuesday.

Good day for a road trip. Or is it? Royal Ascot in the car while traversing from Middleburg, to Laurel, to Monkton, to Delaware Park. I'll put the bets in early and pull over every 35 minutes to watch the final day of Royal Ascot as I hit the road to inspect a potential 2-year-old purchase at Laurel, a couple of jumpers in Monkton and watch Duke Of Perth return at Delaware Park. He's been away a while. Time to hit the road. As the great George Baker would say, "Must dash."

Exactly where I said I wasn’t going to be, one year ago. On the couch while Royal Ascot begins. Five days. Pomp. Pageantry. Great racing. Turf.
