She said no I will, you do everything. Not that I am looking for pats on back at all, it just helped.

Horses and racing helps. It's more than just winning and money. Why I try to encourage people to get into it.
I do enjoy horse racing. I actually used to work for The Jockey Club in the mail room, and then later on worked at Equibase with the race programs. I liked the people in The Jockey Club better

As for the @ thing, just put that symbol, and immediately start typing a forum user's name. No spaces (unless they have them in their forum name. So yours is @aubie :)

@Tazzie , that sounds like fun! I hope the weather will be warm though! I would love to get one of those sidexside's - we have one, but it is an Arctic Cat something-something that is more useful for farm chores than going hard-core on trails.

I think tonight I will be making quinoa and having kale/romaine/quinoa salad. I have a race to run tomorrow so try to have something light and healthy the night before.

Tomorrow I'm up early to head to the city for my race, then will kill some time before a big wine-tasting event I'm going to with a friend.
Hopefully it stays warm! It's currently around 70 degrees today :) and we're heading further south, so hopefully it will be nice! My husband bought this toy specifically for trail riding, but he does use it for work. He put a hitch on it

The day we bought it:



And after I put a little mud on it



Have fun wine tasting!

@Tazzie thanks. I enjoy your posts. I have said before I am a fan of all things Commonwealth. Horse, bourbon, bluegrass most notably.

I don't usually talk much on here, but I'll chime in this time :o) I have no idea what's for dinner, I think DH is going to throw something on the grill. Either sausage or tenderloin, something that's already in the freezer. We both hate going to the grocery store!

Tomorrow we are going to talk to a company about building a house. We want to go with a "barndominium" (metal house/shop combo, in case that's a regional term that some don't know). We have a friend that builds them but he said go talk to the company that supplies the materials first and they will help us to design it and figure out what all we need. Then he can work with them.

I love horse racing! There is a side of me that feels bad for the horses because I wonder how much they really want to run and how much they just don't know any better. Plus I know it can really be hard on their bodies, heart and lungs included. But I do enjoy watching it and am just amazed at the athleticism and beauty of the horses. My mom loved race horses too. She always dreamed of having a race horse. None of her foals ever really made it to that and when she passed away she instead had 14 pasture puffs. Not all foals she had raised, but "pets" none the less. I really wish for her sake that her dream would have come true. But all of that is the reason I cried during the entire movie Secretariat. I always knew he was her dream horse!

However, I also enjoy gambling! So I only go to the track on occasion and never watch simulcast racing. Although I always stick with "$2 to show" (I'm cheap), I could lose a lot of money fast. Also because I bet with my heart...not what the forms suggest. "That one is pretty, I think he'll win".

@Kriva post more often! Especially in the Friday Conversation. Tune In Saturday for the World Cup and a chance to see a really special horse continue his path of becoming on of the greats.

I used to be that way about simulcasting when at the track. But it really is a players advantage. I killed last meet at Lonestar and Remington in Oklahoma. Getting to know certain tracks, jocks, and trainers is a huge thing.

I do too :) which is why I had to stay down here. We routinely show down near Lexington and Louisville, so we are in the heart of Bluegrass Country. It's just plain gorgeous. I've gotten tours of Calumet (one in a private tour, another with a group), Winstar, and a few others, but I can't remember right this second, naturally. Oh! Juddmont was one of them (I have a hat from there haha!)

I have visited and loved it. Thought about college at Western. Should have looked harder at UK. Lots of programs that I would have enjoyed. Wonder sometimes how things might have been different. I am happy with what I chose and it's a big part of me. I paid for college myself, and that wouldn't have been possible at all going out of state/ not having college in my hometown.

Ok this is a brag but feeling so good. In the tournament I am in, I just hit on my selection of a 5-1 horse. Only player that saw him. Beat two heavy favorites one with meets leading rider.

Visiting Winstar Farm was one of my favorite horsey tourist experiences. My only regret was that this trip happened at a time when cell phone cameras were pretty bad, meaning the quality of these pictures stinks:



Meeting "the big horse" Tiznow:


(I think in this picture, my face is more honest about how in-awe I was of actually being able to touch this horse!)



Meeting Harlan's Holiday:


Colonel John:


Obligatory Bourbon Tour:




Turned out on that beautiful rolling Bluegrass:
