Oaklawn Diaries: ‘The Holy Ghost’ and Other Racing Superstitions
Have any superstitions about the racetrack?
Of course, many bettors, jockeys, horsemen and other racetrackers will tell you – don’t mess with the good side of luck and stay as far away from the bad side of it as possible.
From $50 bills to black cats and brooms, superstition is a long-standing tradition on the backstretch and at the betting windows. Ray Paulick and Scott Jagow continue their Rebel Stakes weekend visit in Hot Springs, Ark., with this edition of Oaklawn Diaries.
