I had the honor of being invited to cover the Remington Park Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony last Wednesday–such a treat! Remington Park sure knows how to put on a party, starting with finger foods and wine even before you’d hit the registration table. It was quite a treat to be among some of the greatest the local horse racing community has to offer. And as usual, Silks Restaurant had a wonderful setup of food (prime rib, mashed potatoes, and asparagus) and fantastic wait staff. Between the music by the Joe Merrick band, delicious food, and exciting atmosphere, this was an event to remember!
This moment above touched everyone present. These are relatives of Jacky Martin, a legendary quarter horse jockey, who was inducted into the Remington Park Hall of Fame. He was not able to be present, but his tearful words of gratitude for the award were projected for all to hear.
