First Day Of Spring The Return Of Tom Durkin

Some mark the first day of spring as the vernal equinox, looking up that high gives me a pain in the neck. For me and other passionate race fans from New York we mark the beginning of spring as the return of Tom Durkin to Aqueduct. It has been so good to hear him today at Aqueduct. His calls are crisp and filled with emotive adjectives. Racing is great all alone but season it with a bit of Tom Durkin and it becomes extraordinary entertainment.

One of many beautiful calls. Thanks for the clip.

Thanks for picking up on Funny Cide. I could only see a list of horses who won the race, so I overlooked him by mistake.

A thrilling race between the 1994 Horse of the Year and the 1994 Breeder's Cup Classic winner.
