Thank you so much tachyon, It was so exciting. I found the pink silks and tried to follow him all the way,it was like watching his mom. He will do just great in the G1! I am so excited, just can’t wait. it is so amazing to see the races there, the horses seem to be so well behaved. Thank you tachyon for sending us the replays and the amazing pictures of Keiai and Keiai, and all the others. Be blessed.....dks. Am so proud of all Smarty’s grandkids and kids racing in Japan.
