Terra is a very nice young lady and a great photographer!
I also want to add something… there are MANY people who quietly take care of an OTTB, paying for their care out of their own pocket and doing it happily. Here are some names of horses that have been given loving homes as a result of the quiet kindness of people: Rightful Image, Diplo, Commuter, Squeak. I am not criticizing John Malone for taking donations for COF, but merely pointing out that there are MANY people who are supporting OTTBs in their own way and out of their own pocket, simply because of a love for the horse.
I agree with you, Ashley, that this battle should not have been aired publicly. People make comments and say nasty things about both parties without the facts. It's not fair to either party to carry this battle out in this manner.
This is too good!!

Thanks, Z! As are you!
I love it, Brian!! Love the mixing of pop culture and horses.
Hey, I can respect people's opinions and you always back yours up with facts. But welcome to ANIMAL WORLD DOMINATION time! In all seriousness, we are always here for you to help out. We can't all be in front of the TV for every big race day and it really helps to have social media to find out the latest news.
I remember this period of racing from last summer quite well. Several horses caught my eye around this time...Orb was one of them, Craving Carats, Violence...I remember watching one impressive performance after another. Man, I can't wait for Saratoga! :) Oh wait... we have this whole Triple Crown thing first. :)
Sounds so wonderful!! I am so glad you had a great time!! I too have an incredible love and appreciation of Palm Meadows and what I consider its sibling, Fair Hill (in Maryland). Both are just fabulous places to see one's favorite horses off the track. Last year, Sharon Meason and I were fortunate enough to see Union Rags and Awesome Feather at Palm Meadows. If you enjoyed PM, you will most certainly enjoy a visit to Fair Hill, where both Graham Motion and Michael Matz have stables. Oh - and I look forward to tomorrow's article!
