Nice update on Hard Facts, who is a track pony and show jumping now and based at Fair Hill.

Horse Bio: “Hard Facts” (2009) Hard Spun / Banshee Winds, by Known Fact
Hard Facts is an 8 year old OTTB chestnut gelding. Hard Facts raced for Harry and Tom Meyerhoff and was trained by Michael Trombetta who is based at the nearby Fair Hill Training Center as well as Laurel Racecourse in Maryland. Hard Facts raced until he was 5 years old, earning just over $54,000; he is now retired to show and serve as a racetrack pony for the Fair Hill division of Trombetta Racing. He is currently owned by Sarah Shaffer and has generously been offered on loan to Dr. Anderson for the event.

This is such a nice series they are doing on horse and rider. And Herringswell Stables is sharing them on Facebook, where I see them. Some old favorites there.

Grateful was a close 2nd in the Glens Falls, as she and Harmonize battled head to head down to the wire.

She was the only 3yo in the field, so I think she acquitted herself well. She did get a weight break, though, but I still think she showed promise. She didn't give up.
