Phil ventured out to an OTB last Saturday that Phil hadn’t been to since before Covid – 19. Faces were all familiar but less of them. Not a single new face or younger face in the rather sparse crowd.

Phil has a question:

Isn’t it high time that Clark Kent and the Undertaker got their walking papers and Horse Racing Alberta hired some competent staff.
