Channel Surfing the Simulcasts: Our Favorite Moments

Scanning the coast-to-coast simulcast signals, these are our guilty pleasures …

Aqueduct: Andy Serling berating a bad 3-5 shot with eight minutes to post.

Golden Gate: Michael Wrona calling every horse across the wire in a maiden $5,000 claimer.

Calder: Those scantily clad young ladies who introduce the exotic wagers.

Gulfstream: The ads they run for the Dean’s Gold Gentleman’s Club (there must be something in that Florida water).

(/Laurel Park: Trying to guess what finish line they’re using.>

Fair Grounds: A tie between Soup of the Day and John G. Dooley’s hairdo.

Hawthorne: Literally seeing the breath of each horse during a race.

Del Mar: Julio Canani’s yellow shirt, pink shorts and blue socks.

Saratoga: Trying to spot a member of a minority not walking a horse.

Keeneland: The class shows right through the screen.

Mountaineer: Just like watching an episode of Duck Dynasty (minus the beards).

Santa Anita: Jon White’s factoids

Turfway: “Gaaaaaayyyy Ning Ground”

Monmouth: Brad Thomas’ shades, which protect him from picking the chalk.

Arlington Park: Two words: Alyssa Ali

Barretts/Fairplex/Pomona/Track Previously Known as Prince: The ultimate hot dog and pony show

Churchill Downs: Jill (Will Rogers) Byrne, who never met a horse she didn’t like.
