He beat stablemate Lord Simba handily with the rest of the field, in Michael Wrona' s words, "a street behind."
Second dam is Lunar Spook--was she the one-eyed mare?
I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.

Whitmore won an allowance today! His 2nd allowance win after his 19th in the Derby. I like this gelding by Pleasantly Perfect.

Green Gratto Grinds Out Toboggan Win

Gaston and Anthony Grant's Green Gratto grinded out a gate-to-wire win, with pressure every step of the way, in the Jan. 16 Toboggan Stakes (G3) at Aqueduct Racetrack.

Dortmund had his first workout under Art Sherman's watch.

I liked this:
"He fills Chrome's stall up pretty good, he walks around there and enjoys having twice the room," Sherman said. "He's always had issues with his feet, so that's the main concern, just getting his feet going good and keeping him sound. He's so big and heavy on himself, I can see how he's going to be a handful to get ready.
"It might take me a couple months, but I'm just going to play it by ear. Now that I've got him the way I think he should be going, I'm under no pressure. Kaleem just said to take my time, he just wants to keep him going."

I hope he can actually get in a full season of racing. IIRC, last year was mostly layoffs due to injuries?

The Mouse That Roared. :D

Hmm...this article describes Forest Mouse as a "horse." Is this nine-year-old still intact?
If so, I hope that he'll be headed off to the shed soon. After earning over $855,000, he's earned a cushy farm job. :P ;)
