There used to be Gray Ghost Handicaps at several tracks in the US during the winter. Anyone here still card them?

Isn't there also a big one in the UK at Ascot?
Must be quite a sight to see a field of greys and whites charging down the stretch.

Well this is a bummer... but then again, good that they figured it out before she could injure it further. Hopefully she makes it back to racing.

FAN DII NA found to have a fracture in the right side of the Ilium (Iliac?) bone. This explains many things. Future to be discussed

Will Isla Bonita be standing at Shadai as well? He's really a stunner to look at, he's a classic winner, and with his durability throughout 5 seasons of racing, winning graded stakes from 7f to 11f... he could be a really good value.
