Re: Happiness

Congrats, Bal! You look so magnificently classy in that wedding photo. LOVE the veil! My happiness is that I'm working on a small veggie and berry farm for the summer. 8 hours in the sun and dirt. I'm sore and tired and just got my first gnarly sunburn of the season. I am incandescently happy. Offic...

Re: The movie thread

I love a really solid horror film and can get exceedingly picky about my choices. Get Out was something above and beyond. A truly magnificent first showing for a director and IMO a game changer for the genre, or at least a subset of it. Can't wait for more from Jordan Peele. On the other hand, I am ...

So absurd. I hope it gets no traction. Do trainers even want to put their colts in something like this?

Re: Cozmic One

Oh! What fun news.

I am interested to see if this brings interest in aftercare options for ALL Thoroughbreds to the Zenyatta fan crowd. Coz is definitely a fine ambassador for the move into second careers, being who he is. I'm excited to see where he goes!

Its so incredibly tragic and then to see the morons trying to point fingers at the people who risked their lives trying to save the horses is just to much for me. Are you on the TBC Facebook?

An OTTB non-profit for your Giving Tuesday consideration...

Some shameless plugging ahead, but it's relevant to our interests. I swear! In July 2016, I had the chance to upend my entire life and move to freakin' Vermont (after 6 years of intending to move to Los Angeles) to intern with a thoroughbred aftercare organization. It's small and scrappy and I love ...

It is.

I don't know why they're retiring him. I get nothing is sure.. but Met Mile?
Right? I would've LOVED to see Gun Runner head to the Met, but if he's not, PJ seems an easy gamble.
