    Oh I'm so sorry. Stuff like this is heartbreaking, whether or not it's actually headshaking.

    What I will say is that I live in a part of the country that...

    ozjb, you're right, of course. But GHF no longer does the upper levels where large crowds are a given. I'm talking about a really large crowd of spectators, BTW. And there are so many horses,...
