Happy Wednesday, Folks!

R6: Convertible Freeze (#1)
This 4-year-old son of Connect is racing at his preferred distance in this 11K Claiming race. He comes into this race in great form. With his speed (& a clean break), we could see him going gate-wire for trainer Michael LeCesse.
From our friends @ https://www.nationaldaycalendar.com
"National Harvey Wallbanger Day on November 8th recognizes a fruity and spirited cocktail made with three parts vodka, 1 part Galliano, and six parts orange juice. Pour it into a highball glass and garnish it with an orange slice and a maraschino cherry.
Donato ‘Duke’ Antone deserves the credit for the cocktail's invention. He operated Duke's Blackwatch Bar on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood. Over the years, Antone collected quite a few credits for famous beverages. As a bartender, his resume was impressive - inventor of the Rusty Nail, White Russian, and Flaming Russian. According to the bartending wizard, in 1952, a surfer named Tony Wallbanger inspired the cocktail. Harvey Wallbanger remained a quiet little secret in San Diego until around 1968. Then George Bednar, a marketing director for McKesson Imports Company (the maker of Galliano), joined up with graphic artist Bill Young. Their marketing campaign launched a Harvey Wallbanger character that exploded into commercial popularity in the late 1960s and 1970s."
