She's a large strong filly, and what a beautiful grey she is too. I am hoping that Friday running in the Eight Belles she'll get some of the respect she deserves and maybe even make it to the winner's circle. She deserves a win and she has certainly earned her due. I agree that you can't help but root for her when you know her story.
Please keep up with your laminitis research, if you could contribute one major factor to benefit horses and racehorses in particular, it would be advances in the understanding, treatment and hopefully prevention of the dreaded tissue disease. You have my respect and support Sophie!
He shouldn't be on this list, but a great favorite is Australia's Subzero. He is a national hero there. He won the Melbourne Cup in 1992 and was one of only five grey horses to do so. He always comes back to Flemington to parade on Melbourne Cup Day. Each year on the same card as the cup, they hold a race for grey horses only. It's a big fan favorite. I have to say that Subzero is as big a star in Australia as you can get! See http://edition.cnn.com/2013/11/04/sport/subzero-horse-melbourne-cup/
He's certainly a game horse with incredible conformation and muscle tone. I think he's definitely a strong competitor and I expect him to finish in the top three!

Why do people keep calling his breeding humble- he may have taken a side street, but he's got Cozzene and Mr. Prospector in him---and he's channeling that speed and stride
