About me/racing interests:
I've been an HRN member since mid 2011 under the previous moniker of "cocoa2". I am a lover of horses and have been following the sport since 2004, at the age of 6.

How did I get into racing?
My grandfather was a racing fan and as a child he fell in love with Tom Fool. When Smarty Jones made his bid for the Triple Crown, my entire family was behind him. Some years later, our interests progressed and my father turned the TV on just in time to catch Comma to the Top run in a maiden claimer. Later that year he won the Cashcall Futurity -- and so I was hooked for good.

Favorite racing moment?
Either Comma to the Top's gusty win in the Tom Fool where he came back with blinkers on to win the race after he was down a head, Mylute's rally in the Louisiana Derby at 20-1 to pass Revolutionary and then settle for second, or Dr. Fager's World Record Mile.
