Bernard Meyers on Dry Nation on Bainbridge Park


Here is a picture sent to us by one of our readers trying to find information on a rider, his horse and a racetrack.  If anyone out there knows about the rider, his horse or the track please respond with a comment.  It would be greatly appreciated.  Here is the email we recieved with the picture.
“We have a picture, dated 1932, which is also labeled Bainbridge Park, owner (of
pictured horse “Dry Nation) “Bronnenberg.”  My husband’s step brother Bernard
Meyers is up.  We cannot find a Bainbridge Park anywhere in IL, OH, or IN and
have no clue as to which state it might have been in.  If that place still
exists as a horse track it could now be under another name.  Has anyone in your
organization ever heard of the park or the horse?”

This Year’s Triple Crown Horse Races

Well this year’s triple crown was exciting and filled with some unexpected results.  The 137th Kentucky derby was won by Animal Kingdom 20 to 1 longshot.  The 136th running of the Preakness was won by Shackleford with odds at 12 to 1 and the Belmont was won by Ruler on Ice at 24 to 1.  I thought it might be interesting to hear how some of you like to pick your horses.  So if you don’t mind enlightning others please let us know how you fare and some unorthodox methods for picking horses that you have heard others use or you use yourself.
