     Potpourri 3663  "Groaner Alert : The Scottish Painter."

     With this being the Easter Weekend I can resist putting up this terrible Groaner
     that has a religious twist. But here it is. Read it at your own risk. You've been warned.
     Even the Easter Bunny doesn't leave eggs with this type of "bad yolk."
     There was a Scottish painter named Smokey MacGregor
     who was very interested in making a penny where he could.
     To do so he often thinned down his paint to make it go a wee bit further.
     As it happened, he got away with this for many years.
     There came the day though when the local church (also called the "kirk") decided
     to do a big restoration job on the outside of one of their biggest buildings.
     Smokey put in a bid, and, because his price was so low, he got the job.
     So he set about erecting the scaffolding and setting up the planks,
     and buying the paint and, yes, thinning it down with turpentine.
     Well, Smokey was up on the scaffolding, painting away, the job nearly completed,
     when suddenly there was a horrendous clap of thunder, the sky opened, and the rain
     poured down washing the thinned paint from all over the church and
     Smokey was knocked clear off the scaffold.
     He landed on the lawn among the gravestones, surrounded by telltale puddles of the
     thinned and useless paint.
     Smokey was no fool. He knew this was a judgment from the God All Mighty,
     so he got down on his knees and cried:
      "Oh, God, Oh God, forgive me; what should I do?"
     And from the thunder, a mighty voice spoke.
     Now brace yourself here.
     I'm sure you're going to love what the Mighty voice said.
     It shouted:
     "Repaint! Repaint! And thin no more!" (G-r-o-o-o-a-n)

     Free Play   Saturday Race T.B.A.
     For Wednesday's Race 9 at Tampa Bay our Quickgaps were 1-8-6-4.
     But the race came off the turf and 5 scratches were made.
     Under those circumstances, I had no play.
     "Yes!" They came home 1/6/4/8.
     The Quickgap 1/6 Exacta paid $41.60.

     (The Quickgaps also had the tri and $1400 Super.)
     For Thursday's Race 9 at Keeneland our Quickgaps were 10-6-5-9.
     "Yes!" They came home 10/6/7.
     The 10/6 Exacta paid $30.80. My play on #9 Jock's Girl yielded diddly squat.

     For Good Friday's Race 8 at Gulfstream our Quickgaps were 4-12-7-2.
     I said:
     "I'd really like to beg off this race and say "I truly don't know."
     But, what the heck, it's a holiday and I'll try:
     Exacta 4/2-7-12   2-7-12/4   box 2-4-7-12.?
     Not even remotely close. They came home 3/6/11.

     I'll post a play for Saturday by 1 pm EDT. Best luck with your selections.
