Reece and Oscar happy to receive Vyjack back at Machmer Hall to begin his second career after running in the KY Derby and amassing over $1 million in earnings. Thanks to David Wilkenfeld for sending him back in such great shape

And so, do horses returning to the place where they had been born, years ago, seem to recognize the place where they spent their childhood? As far as one can tell...

I would presume so. A horse's sense of smell, sight and hearing are much keener than ours, and the smells, etc. of the place where he spent the first months of his life are probably imprinted on Vyjack.

Sophie - a pertinent tweet. Messi (the horse) is officially retired, happy and sound after his sub par performance this weekend. #lovehim #barnfave

Sophie Shore @Shore_Sophie
Happy Messi finally scored in a World Cup game this year, but I can’t be the only one that thinks @HerringswellStb Messi is still more deserving of unending love and public affection. #MessiAppreciationPost

This gal is a BC bred and raced at Hastings Assiniboia, Prairie Meadows, and Turf Paradise before ending up at Camarero. Some here might remember her.
