Greetings from a sad breadman,
The news of the passing of Ed Esser hit hard on Sunday. Of the
thousands of people I've met chasing tracks around the world, I can easily make
the claim that Ed was one of the finest. No matter how bad the racing
program, you knew that sharing a night at the races with Ed would be an enjoyable
evening. Bench racing with Ed was always informative while being
interspersed with his wry wit and humor. No agendas. Just a man dedicated to a sport
he loved so much. We will never see his like again, I fear. Hopefully, he
has secured a seat next to Bob Blair and the Garys, Jacob and Storey, at the
great race track in the sky. Rest in peace, my special friend.
I am very interested in a memorial for Ed. I was thinking of a plaque
on his regular seat at Angell Park. Any other thoughts?
