An excuse to post a fun little story.

Why the fans just can’t get enough of this tiny mint-loving filly with the ‘puppy-dog’ eyes
While stakes winners get the accolades in racing, the lower-level runners are the ones keeping the sport alive on a daily basis. They can be just as beloved as their more famous counterparts, as is the case with the Woodbine Racecourse-based Bear’s Pearl.

The diminutive gray developed an international following thanks to a social media presence and the generosity of her connections, who endlessly shared her with tour groups and fans. Despite her gentle nature, Bear’s Pearl earned $404,605 the hard way, running almost exclusively in claiming races.

No-one loved her more than Joseph De Paulo, son of leading Woodbine trainer Mike De Paulo and his wife and assistant trainer, Josie.

Glad that Symm Symm is doing well. I kinda felt bad that she spent almost all of her previous life at Denali and then was sold.

It just simply amazes me how one little mare (and a cranky one, lol) can have some much influence . Champion on the track and in the shed. A rare gem indeed.

Wait a While going to Ghostzapper excites me. Something about Maria's Mon and Ghostzapper blood together...

Considering how good Arrogate is, I wonder why they haven't bred Bubbler back to one of UBS's sons. Is it because, so far, none of his sons are wowing breeders? :?

When you want to sell a mare, the best way to attempt getting her full value and beyond is probably to sell her in foal to Tapit. I'd be very surprised if they didn't try to get her through the ring again this year, she's visibly/measurably more valuable now than she was last November.
