    We will hopefully be bringing at least four of our guys down there! They all came from Portland Meadows but also ran at ED.

    That is awesome!

    And the 100-day OTTB training thing could open a great new chapter for the OTTB Conversion world. I'd love to be part of that.

    I love the slowest canter competition for ex-racehorses. That's hilarious.
