I have to agree with you what they are doing for the fans. Winstar Farm had a contest a while back and they ran a few of them to name their colts in contests. I entered them and I was a LUCKY winner in one of them. And can you believe that it is Gemol…read moreogist that I named and now is on the derby trail. It makes me feel good that even though I am not an owner I feel like I am a part of him,knowing he his caring that name and for the rest of his life and that is something I am a part of even when he goes to stud and has crops of his own one day. It's so cool when I read the articles about him on the internet with his name and it hits me that I named him or when they are calling his name during the race by the track announcer. It was exciting to see him win the Kentucky Jockey Club Stakes and hear his name called. They sent me a copy of the jockey papers that you get when the colt is named for racing and a key chain with his name on it like you see them wear on their halters. I also play the other contests they have as well. I am a free member of there stablemates and hope to join one of the graded ones one day. I do want to see though if he does make it to the Derby or one of his other big races he may run if I would request tickets if they would agree and be a part of the winners circle. That would be so great. Winstar has figured it out. I know it is all about breeding and owning but if it was not for the fans and people who bet on the races,would there be an industry for horse racing. Sorry to be so long in this message. Just wanted to share.
