    I know in my case, the lack of certainty on time, for example, is actually a good sign. My trainer takes however long he takes in every lesson. Especially when my mare was new under saddle we had...

    They warned that they would run out early, so we bought ours on Wednesday. It's too bad - if they knew that, why didn't they order more?

    Agreed.


    It was fun. And I was absolutely blown away by Sanceo. I may be alone, as I haven't read any raves, but that was the one horse who took my breath away all week.

    I actually find reading candidates' own press releases are usually enough for me to not want to vote for them.
