I don't know if she posts here anymore, but seeing the stake this weekend made me think of her. If she still reads here, I hope you are well. I think of you often when I post here and wonder about the mare you had and the little filly... a Disco Rico, I believe. I'm sure some of the other old timers could help me remember more.

Gin Talking S is a little 2yo filly stakes at Laurel on Saturday. Interestingly enough, a granddaughter of hers - Look Who's Talking - is entered to race! Hope she does her grandma proud.

I remember her and how excited she was about the Disco Rico foal. I often wonder about that foal and how it turned out.

Heck, I remember my good buddy Spurlock and his ornery mule avatar.

So many former posters whose sensible, informative, courteous posts I miss. . .
I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.

Wracked my brain. Americelebration was the mare. Quick check of pedigree query shows the Disco Rico filly was Ilovethenightlife. Also a few more foals and now that I've seen their names I remember them, lol.

I may be pregnant and old but sometimes the brain pops things out. :lol:

To whoever may know Gin Talking offline, you were appreciated and missed.

and Flander's beat me to it! LOL

I haven't seen her post here in at least a few years, probably longer. But there is a user with that name registered.
Something happened on here and I believe she stopped posting because of it.

Stalker McCreep (aka The Knight Sky) started a dozen pages worth of an argument over the lighting of a photo with her.

Ah, yes. The argument over what "gadgets" we're used to capture a Dirt Mile win and make it apparently look darker in the sky than it was. Jeez almighty.
Not a wholesome trottin' race, no, but a race where they sit down right on the horse!
Like to see some stuck-up jockey boy sittin' on Dan Patch? Make your blood boil? Well, I should say!

She's a friend on Facebook. I'm sure she'd love to friend you.
