On the way to the breeding shed with a mare early this morning, the van driver took us on a swift detour through downtown Versailles, Ky. Fortunately, I wasn’t driving when I saw the following political placard prominently posted on the side of the road:

Johnny Jones for Jailer

Vote * Vote * Vote

Maybe it was the early morning coffee lag or something else, but I nearly wrenched my neck checking out the sign.

Surely it’s not “our” Johnny Jones? No, he has better things to do.

But, on the other hand, wouldn’t it be handy if the local jailer were a member of the racing hierarchy? He could certainly make things mighty interesting for Frankfort politicos swerving through Woodford Countyafter a late night at the riverboats.
