Touts and tipsheets

A recent dream was that the winner of the Jim Dandy was miraculously revealed in advance and was long-odds winner with a big pay-out. Today's NYT had a sweet little piece about the tipsheet business. None of the better known ones have any on-line presence (at least not one easily to be found). The Morning Telegraph is gone; the Racing Form carries on. The Pink Sheet is up there, too, at least during the season. Little kids always collect the discarded ones for souvenirs. Denizens of backstretch are the subject of a folklore article.
