Lexie Lou just won impressively but was sent directly to the card on Belmont Day and was eaten up early. Too much too soon.
Inglorius had such a potential career but NEVER won another race after the Plate.
the grooms brought out PINK towels to attend her after each race so as to hide the bleeding. Fibrosis of that affected lung eventually lead to many foaling problems.

I had the pleasure of meeting Bob TIller and his wife at the Hall of Fame induction two years back: Nice people. I wish him well.
Saratoga: make sure you walk all around the track, over by the backstretch, near the gate and don't miss the US Racing Museum across the street (it is a treat unto itself). When I was last there a year ago, they were building a smaller exhibit near the main grandstand entrance as a display of what the Hall of Fame is all about to entice more participation. There is a smaller version of the great Secretariat statute in the paddock at Belmont, in a quiet garden area in the Hall of Fame. A must see. Look for the jockey silks room too: very colorful as far as you can see. The place exudes HISTORY in spades.
best two lines ever: 1 Surfer Moon

Take a plater and run them short over the ultra fast old Longacres track: FAST FAST TIMES. It was mostly the track, not the horse. As I watch faster than normal times each day at Belmont this season, I see the same thing.
