What might make him a reasonable choice (for a turf horse) for a race like the Pegasus is because he has speed. If he can handle the brown stuff (over which I would hope O'Brien will try training him before shipping him off to Florida), he has a dangerous combination; speed and stamina.

What a brilliant and consistent sort Maurice is. I hope he does well at stud.

Also I still can't believe how badly A Shin Hikari has tailed off since his terrific win in the Prix d'Ispahan.

One of these heading off to stud at the height of his career; the other finds retirement almost mercifully.

There's a video (horse kicking moron to the ground?) of a blue roan horse being lead on the street, maybe in some sort of a parade. I'm almost positive that the animal is a Gypsy Horse, or Gypsy Cob...and you really have to be incredibly annoying and stupid to aggravate one of those horses enough to kick like that. :o Even the stallions are very laid back.

That's neat; thanks for sharing. I'm particularly intrigued by the spinning antics of Hakusan Moon.

Though most of us I'm sure know his story, I still thought this was a nice article.
