"The Hunt"

 As mentioned in the last post...The Far Hills steeplechase has devolved into a liquored-up  see-and-be-seen-wasted mess. The event organizers nearly had to ban alcohol based on the fights and arrests and general boorish behavior exhibited by the psuedo-horsey set who come to pose and puke.
 I have attended this race several times but gave it up years ago. My buddy Michael Moran's horse, McDynamo won the big stakes there a few years in a row and after that I said enough.
 Now, I like to have a few belts of bourbon and a beer or 5 at a steeplechase tailgate. But our crew is there to watch and wager and enjoy the sport. These posers are there to drool on their tweed and get in the DUI on deck circle.
 This North Jersey bridge and tunnel crowd is there to do one thing...party. The event stacks the rows of tailgates so far back from the course that a huge majority of those in attendance are there only to drink and act out....and have no idea what is happening in the paddock or on the course or in the winner's circle.


There is a now famous Youtube video of a bunch of lovely young ladies engaging in a drunken, muddy cat fight after the race...give it a look and you will see all you need to see and know how low this event has fallen.( The first photo in this post is a still from that video....)

What a shame that such lad and ladette behavior has infected/infested even events like this one. Something's got to give sooner or later.

Best Regards,

That's pretty disgusting. Not that we want to return to the days of exclusionary racist club events, of course, but this is just ridiculous.

Just heard the news about Andrew and am very saddened to hear. He was always such fun to read, whether I liked what he wrote about or not.

RIP MLS

Sad news for sportsmen and those committed to a quality lifestyle.

Sad to see this news on the Daily Prep page. I have been following the MLS blog for a year or two now. Always to the point and the sportsman stories reminded me a lot of hunting with my dad growing up. You will be missed. Rest In Peace.

RIP Great Gamesman, your writing will be missed. 51 is way too young for such a vibrant spirit to leave this Earth.

It acts as a serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor, but acts more like an antidepressant than a stimulant. It is currently unclear whether the 4-halogenated cathinones share the selective serotonergic neurotoxicity of their corresponding amphetamines.
