Curtis come on over to Ruffian's game too!

BTW i did too many doubleheaders to count. From Aqueduct/Belmont on a school bus after the last race ,to Roosevelt/Yonkers.

In one winter day, after 9 races at Aqueduct,took the bus to Roosevelt raceway but they canceled before the first race because of snow.
On to the LIRL for Penn station where my 2 friends and i run to the Port Authority bus terminal to get to the Medowlands. As the bus got there
every one was exiting the track because they canceled after the third race!

That counts as a triple header in my book
