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

After John Martin claimed her for $12,500 at the beginning of January 2017, this daughter of Broken Vow went on a 10 race win streak rising up the ranks to Multiple Graded Stakes Placed status. I'm one of her many fans!

2017 New Zealand Derby winner GINGERNUTS has been officially retired this morning after a injury suffered in Australia before the start of the G1 Emirates Stakes in November last year. As always Kudos to jockey Michael Dee who immediately pulled him up and waved down the vets. Though his injury has healed well it was decided it was too much of a risk to race again.
Gingernuts had a cult following in New Zealand, Australia and around the world mainly thanks to his 35 owners (many first time owners) wearing their orange GNutz hats when he raced

Here is Gingernuts winning the 2017 Avondale Guineas. It wasn't his most prestigious win, as he won the New Zealand Derby at his next start, but it was his most impressive!
