    Great article but couldn't they find a nicer picture? I appreciate it because he looks like he's getting himself out of an interesting distance but it's not the most impressive one for non horsey people.

    Non horsey people wouldn't actually have a clue about that sort of thing. The only ones who see a picture of something more than a "horse jumping a big fence" ARE the horsey ones.

    And then the horsey people who watched Authentic go around remember he wasn't the most orthodox or classical jumper in the field, just usually the fastest, cleanest one.

    How nice to have the coverage ! And and how nicer it would've been if they had spelled Nicole's last name correctly (it's Uphoff).

    Still, a round of applause to the LA Times.
