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! ;)

I’ve known plenty of horses pulling out with 4 shoes coming back from the gallops with only 3 but never known a horse to come back with 5 shoes... This is exactly what happened to one of my fillies this very morning! Unbelievable!

:o That looks like it could have hurt. :?
I know Gun Runner picked up a lost shoe in his tail last year, but for a shoe flying through the air to land a perfect 'ringer' on another horse's leg has to be nearly impossible.

They are very lucky she wasn't hurt badly. The blacksmith had to pry open the shoe to get it off. Yes, that guy needs to buy a lotto ticket right now.

Replying to @mbauerherzog
The filly is fine @mbauerherzog , not a single scratch on her, thank God. Pretty scary to witness though as she picked up that shoe in full canter!
