  • Really enjoyed listening to Mark’s story and let him know that I was born in Bolivia and my 1st nickname was Joe Bolivia. I probably met him at Laurel or the old Crack Claw. My favorite angle is maiden claimers on the Turf😉🏇

  • For Smokin Joe McKay: no doubt we saw each other at both Laurel and the Cracked Claw, where I was a regular. Those were good days. Love your specialty. Forgot to mention in podcast: my drinking bouts with horseplaying Panamanian ambassador in Bolivia, who lamented that his government had banished him to Bolivia so he could not play the horses. (Which prompted me to write a novel about some mean people who started a racetrack in Bolivia to launder money.)
