A very nice article, and you are right, it's sad.

Times change, cultures change ... no more drive-in movies, local hardware stores, or kids playing outside all day, either.

I will be curious what the racing scene looks like ten years from now.

Thanks for posting - missed it on the Kindle version of the NYTimes.

So true - and how sad as there is nothing like sharing the thrill of racing, or the beauty of Thoroughbreds with those of like mind. We're disappearing as well.
