Mad Max At the Suffolk Downs


It is October 30, 2015. The last day of live racing festival at Suffolk Downs in 2015.

Race 4 just finished. It was run om the Turf on the main track at One Mile And One Sixteenth.

The jockeys are leaving the track.

The jockey on the left in Vernon Bush, one of the veterans of the Suffolk Downs racing track. The first time he rode at the race was in 1978. Wow, some of the followers of the horse races of the place were not even born in 1978.

Vernon Bush just finished last on the Fair Chase in Race 4. His horse, Fair Chase “stalked the pace on the outside and was through after a half.”

I don’t know the name of the guy on the right. I call him Mad Max. In all probability, he is not even Max. He just looks like a right fit into the Mad Max characters’ gallery.
