    I was eight or nine the first time I fell off. I was riding bareback, galloping in a field, and had that same slow-motion sensation that you did, as I started to slide sideways and realized I...

    That article was funny. I don't think that even an insurance company would pay $16 million for the Green Monkey today. Horses don't appreciate unless their performance merits it, and I doubt that...

    2015 American Pharoah 2:26.65

    I was disappointed to miss the shot of American Pharoah wearing his blanket of white carnations. There were several shots of a groom carrying the blanket while AP was being led, but I wanted to see...

    I thought it was a slow race because he was running so easily. In fact, it was fast. He made it look so effortless.

    The 1901 BS was won by Commando in 2:21.00, faster than Secretariat's time, so I don't think that race was 13f. According to Wikipedia, the race was a mile and five furlongs (13f) from 1867 to 1873...

    The thing about land is that it is really difficult to get financing in California, so your pool of buyers is small. Are there any comps in the area which would give you an idea of whether the 1/3...

    Blind Luck
    What a great mare! She won 12 races — 6 of them Grade I races. Best E figure was 121. Raced 22 times and was out of the money (worse than third) only once. She earned $3,279,520 in...
