…for the glory of the old races—the Suburban, the Brooklyn, the Triple Tiara—to somehow return.
…for Saratoga Russell to come back at four, and to be as fast and electric as he was before he was injured.
…for the Breeders’ Cup to realize that its current vision serves only itself, and for it to choose to serve racing as a whole.
…for Saratoga to remain exactly as it is.
…for folks to realize how much fun a day at the races is.
…for warm mornings and hot coffee on the backstretch.
…for Allen Jerkens to get another terrific filly.
…for horses I love to never get claimed.
…for all of them, humans and equines alike, always, to come home safely.
Please feel free to add yours…
