    Anyone else following the progress of these horses thorugh their early post race training?

    It looks like a great program and it was hinted that there will be more to come.

    Yes, I am paying attention. I watched at the MD expo, am following on FB, and look forward to going to Harrisburg. I ADORE Solidify!

    Solidify is my favorite too because I saw him race and he looks like my old boy, Monroe. Watching the videos and reading the blogs is like horsey reality TV for me. It's like crack, I can't stop...

    I agree -- it is addictive! This project is terrific promotion for OTTBs, and the trainers' blogs and videos provide so much insight into the retraining process.
    Even though the hunter rider and mare lover in me is drooling over Brazilian Wedding, Solidify is my favorite as well, since he is a "Finger Lakes Finest." I saw him several times this past summer and fall while taking listings and showing him to prospective buyers (who must be kicking themselves now for having passed him up!). I bought his stable mate from the same trainer.
    Watching Solidify progress from the high spirited, somewhat tense and body sore from lots of racing horse that I saw on the track as recently as the beginning of December, to such a mellow boy who is learning to stretch and go softly is so gratifying. He has come a long way in a short time. Kudos to Bev and Tiffany!
