... down at Old Del Mar.
In loving memory of my aunt & uncle, Martina & Donald B. Smith - so much a part of the organizational "family" of the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club for three decades - so much a part of MY life, growing up, and my love of all-things-equine ... I post these evocative lyrics:
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."
