What the Nation is saying about the 2013 Beverly D. Stakes (G1)...

The Eclipse Awards are over, now it's time to support the home team.

  • Euro Trash · @goblin, Actually there are phrases in German where dank is used as well. Besten Dank, Haben Sie vielen Dank, Herzlichen Dank, etc. Danke is more commonly used, but Dank does exist in German also. · 240 days ago ·
  • goblin · Yes, Euro, and these things are not difficult to verify! I offered a simple link to illustrate the Germanic vs. the Middle English derivations, but you can see where that was going. As I said above, the insular attitude is something I can't comprehend in this day and age. · 240 days ago ·
