#RIPCigar Guess I believed Tom Durkin a bit TOO much when he said Cigar was INVINCIBLE! Very thankful I was able to meet the UNBEATABLE super-horse in 2007. His INCOMPARABLE record speaks for itself, one of the greatest racehorses of our time, and while he will be greatly missed he will NEVER be forgotten!
Love @WiseDan_ so much...a true champion with one of the biggest hearts in the sport. It goes without saying that everyone who knows anything about racing is overjoyed just to see him healthy & happy after coming way too close to losing him. To have him racing again tomorrow @saratogatrack is a real treat...and to have him back in the winner's circle will truly be icing on a big, beautiful cake! Go Dan GO!!
#AfleetAlex Toughest display of athleticism you'll EVER see...it's been almost 10 years & I'm still in absolute AWE of what Alex did that day. Each time I watch the replay I find myself wide-eyed & slack-jawed all over again...to gather himself & win this #Preakness, then come back and absolutely DESTROY the Belmont field a few weeks later was nothing short of brilliant!
Happy belated Canada Day to all my friends & family a few miles to my West! I hope my American friends & family all have a SAFE & relaxing Fourth of July holiday! :) Last year I literally spent the entire holiday in a hospital bed, preparing for emergency surgery, so I'm just happy to be home this year with nothing but a few DVDs from the library, some Lean Cuisine & my kitty, who is not a fan of the big booms outside lol. So be safe, watch out for each other, thank a service man or woman for your freedom & have a blast celebrating this crazy, complicated, imperfect, frustrating, independent & amazing country that, at the end of the day, we're all VERY lucky to live in! :)
