You can’t make this stuff up

This is an instant classic. Where are Abbot & Costello when you need them?

Check out this priceless racing call from Monmouth Park a few days ago.

That would be adapted from Luke 12:15 and 21.
From the New American Bible:
Then he said to the crowd, “Take care to guard against all greed, for though one may be rich, one’s life does not consist of possessions.
Then he told them a parable. “There was a rich man whose land produced a bountiful harvest.
He asked himself, ‘What shall I do, for I do not have space to store my harvest?’
And he said, ‘This is what I shall do: I shall tear down my barns and build larger ones. There I shall store all my grain and other goods
and I shall say to myself, “Now as for you, you have so many good things stored up for many years, rest, eat, drink, be merry!”
But God said to him, ‘You fool, this night your life will be demanded of you; and the things you have prepared, to whom will they belong?’
Thus will it be for the one who stores up treasure for himself but is not rich in what matters to God.

It would have been just perfect if two of the horses had been named “Yes Dear” and “No Dear”!
