-Rant- Oh how I want it SO MUCH!

Ok Kudos to whoever reads this.

Well I'm watching the Preakness right now. And I was watching the story on the story of Mine that Bird and I just started crying. My family has been in the racing buissness forever and it was always my late grandfather's dream to win or even run in the Kentucky Derby. And now I just want to do it so bad. I really want to make my grandfather proud, and get that one horse. We have a 2 year old right now that is pretty promising, but I don't think he is Derby potential. Ok so rant over

Yeah, good luck to you. I've heard being a jockey is pretty tough.

Every ride, good or bad, teaches you something new.

good luck, and isn't it the dream of every person who had race horses to have one win the triple crown and/ or win the breeder's cup?

A good cowboy always has a better horse at the end of the ride, a poor cowboy will be afoot reguardless of the horse.

Was anyone else incredibly upset by what happened with Mine The Bird at the Preakness?
