Entry for Video of Race #20
Noticed there are no notes beside this video. Even though she lost, one could say it was her finest race. Despite an unfamiliar track, dirt flung in her face, and obstacles beyond her control, she never quit. If the race had been only a yard longer, she would have won. No other horse could have done what she did in those last moments of the race. To exceed beyond all expectations, to make up the last distance with amazing speed and power, and to give the greatest effort at the end has always been her gift. She is not diminished by this last race, and her power and beauty were never more evident. She has all our hearts and always will, but most especially so at this moment, She reminds us, as no other can, that In the most difficult times of our lives, that courage, valiant effort and depth of heart bring the greatest victories. I hope you write a lovely note for her beside this video. She is one of God's most wondrous creatures and it is one of the greatest privileges of my life to have seen her race in person. Thank you for sharing her with us.
