They're Off!

Join the Boston "We've Come for the Davenport" Chapter of the Robert Benchley Society on Saturday, June 2, 2012, for the opening day of live thoroughbred horse racing at Boston's Suffolk Downs. “They’re Off!” is the title of a Benchley essay that appears in Benchley Beside Himself, beginning on page 180, The Treasurer's Report and Other Aspects of Community Singing, beginning on page 277, and Benchley Lost and Found, beginning on page 1. In addition, Benchley was a part-owner of a race horse (bonus points if you can name that horse).

Congratulations to Eileen Mitchell of Palatine, Illinois, who responded, correctly, that the race horse that Benchley was a part-owner of was named Sharpy.
