We are hightailing it up to Saratoga this morning, trying to make it through the traffic window between AM rush hour and when the mid-day construction begins. We’ll be loaded up with books and yours truly will be handicapping the form while trying not to get car-reading headache. If you haven’t heard already we’ll be at the Borders in Saratoga Springs (395 Broadway) signing copies of Off to a Flying Start on Thursday 8/13 from 7-9pm. We’ll be giving out handicapper extraordinaire NickBorg’s late pick 3 and pick 4 for Friday’s card, so please join of us. Afterward,we may even retire here. Thanks go out to everyone who has read the book or commented on this blog, we are having blast on this horse language/ publishing journey.
For those of you wondering about the use of “hightailing it” – the idiom means to go as fast as possible, especially when leaving. The expression is a reference to the raised tail of a rabbit or deer that is running off. Another commentor has layed out the phrases’s horse connection here
