Moments like this

Horse racing is a sport I have mixed feelings about -- as horse people, I know you all understand. The best part of racing is the Thoroughbreds -- their heart, their grace, their brains really make the sport. But there are also special moments that make you see good in the humans that work with the horses. Here's one, from Spendthrift Farm...


  1. It was nice seeing the losing jockey congratulate the winner. Orb ran an amazing race, coming from behind on a really wet track.

    I too have mixed feelings about the racing industry, but it does have its moments to both inspire and thrill.

  2. This happens a lot--last year Mike Smith aboard Bodemeister saluted Mario Gutierrez on I'll Have Another. The truly great jockeys demonstrate good sportsmanship.
