As we all know, cougars are indestructible — Demi Moore is still pretty hot, and just who brought back those American journalists from North Korean captivity? My point exactly. But are cougars powerful enough to counter the terrible effects of a moribund U.S. economy? At Del Mar Racetrack near San Diego, they are indeed.
At Del Mar, track attendance is actually up this year, thanks in no small portion to events such as the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club’s Miss Cougar 2009 competition. Here’s Rosie Goldstein, this year’s winner. Del Mar also features half-priced hot dogs and plush pony toys on most days, but I had a long night last night and I’m too weary to put together a humorous sexual connotation right now. You feel free, though.
