Feeling nostalgic for my godparents, my aunt & her husband, Martina and Donald B. Smith, who were so big a part of the organizational 'family' at the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club for three decades-plus ... I post these evocative song lyrics in their honor:
WHERE THE TURF MEETS THE SURF
(Johnny Burke / Bing Crosby / James V. Monaco) Performed by Bing Crosby
"Where the turf meets the surf down at old Del Mar
Take a plane, take a train, take a car.
There is a smile on every face and a winner in each race
Where the turf meets the surf at Del Mar."
