Every Sunday evening for the past few weeks Flamboro Downs has been running a contest called ‘Media Announcer Idol’, where they have guest announcers come in and call a horse race. Last night, they invited me up to the booth to call race number 3.
For some reason I decided to use an old time radio / newscaster voice… not sure why! lol
Thanks to everyone at Flamboro Downs for having me, and to Gary the regular announcer for putting up with me in the booth and giving me a crash course on what the heck to do.
The video below is the race I called. Skip ahead to the 5:40 mark – that’s when the race starts.
After the race I called, I went down track level and bet on a horse for the first time in my life…
Must have been beginners luck, cause I actually picked the winning horse and won!
