Re: 2018 Toyota Blue Grass @ Keeneland

Maybe the neatest part of watching the Keeneland post parades is HARLEY. :D That big, wide-bodied black pony horse with the feathers and flashy white butt blanket is such a star that even TVG's Todd Schtup is a fan. :lol: Seems like a good time to revisit this article: Meet Harley the Magnificent

Having such great news about his own illness, followed shortly thereafter by having to retire his champion mare, must be a pretty big roller coaster of emotion to deal with. I hope he has yet another future champion filly warming up in the wings for another ride to t...
