Thank you, Sally, I would have been there next week if not for uncontrolled circumstances. I so appreciate you sharing your pictures and commentary of Saratoga. I plan on being there next year thru "h___" or high water!!! :-)
SallyT, thank you for you gorgeous posts. Also, appreciated you comment about how Honor Code did not seem particularly stressed by his race in the Whitney. It has me wondering what his heart and circulatory system are like. Could he have an extra large heart? If HC does have an extra efficient circulatory system, what would American Pharoah's heart and lungs be like? Oh my!!! O.O
That's a great study of observing the horses before and after their races! Interesting to see which horses recover quickly and which need more time to be "cooled down". Thanks again SallyT! :oD
Take Charge Brandi "took off like a rocket" and lead until the top of the stretch, when she quickly faded to last of 10. She was ridden by Luis Saez, who simply let her fade, hand ride, no whip-so I don't know what happened. Sure hope she's OK!
Where do you live bigherbie?
How were Irish American festivities?
Good for your Irish luck! Wish I could be there! Want to go to BC in my lifetime, visit Deauville in France, and see the l'Arc, and some of Irish races. So many races at great venues, not enough money.:(
