The 10th running of the $1 million Delta Downs Jackpot will not only feature a full field of nine of the most talented 2-year-old horses in the country, but in town will be this year’s Kentucky Derby winning jockey/trainer tandem of Mario Gutierrez and Doug O’Neill, who will try to win the Jackpot with Know More. Gutierrez and O’Neill won this year’s Derby and Preakness Stakes with I’ll Have Another.
The reports that I have been receiving from the Hill Country and East to the Texas Piney Woods are of an abundant supply of corns.

While we harbor no disrespect for the Wall Street Journal who called us “that scrappy little paper from Southeast Texas,” we prefer to think of ourselves as simple seekers of the truth.

And, they expect to be informed, educated and stirred to action.
