How can you not get sucked into a good ol' southern romance. Best of luck to them.
I think I could have written this myself, or should say "wish" I could have written this. It explains my passion precisely. Especially "I see something in racehorses that I wish I could find in myself. It is the pursuit of something pure."
I enjoyed this story, especially the statement "Sometimes the true measure of a champion is not in the countless victories, but the rare defeats." For weeks and months after his breakdown, both die hard and casual racing prayed for Barbaro's recovery. It was testimate to his owners that Barbaro was more than an investiment, but a champion of the track in the minds and hearts of every American, not just a thoroughbread racing fan. He recaputred interest in Horseracing long before Zenyatta and while he did succumb to his injuries, there was a huge opportunity to show the public the better side of thoroughbred racing. Unfortunately, the incident with Eight Bells chilled that enthusiam. The last two years of the "Zenyatta" phenomenon should serve as a wake up call to all industry insiders. Negligance, cheating or abuse are not acceptable and when you loose the fans, you loose the purse.
