I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

I don't want to lift the proofed photo from the racingpost site, but I love love love this photo of Kew Gardens winning his maiden at Killarney. How many racetracks in the world can boast that backdrop?

I call that picture "Shared Balloon". :lol: For me it captures just how bouncy he was. Sigh, I loved this horse.

Just after the track renovation break about 7:30 in the morning, horses line up at Santa Anita's top o'the stretch for their exercise and it really creates quite a picture!

That photo must be a huge file; I clicked on the link and just got a white window with the spinning blue circle. After a few minutes of watching the circle whirl, hoping the photo would finish loading, I gave up. :(

Gold Ship's tendons are going to be nice and tight after hanging out in that knee deep snow! ;)
