A Very Brief Recap

Due to circumstances beyond my control, my blog posting will be very brief today......

Sebastian K is Mortal - Yes, Sebastian K is mortal after all in finishing second in the 2014 Maple Leaf Trot at Mohawk.  Who knows if it was due to the off-track or just a tad off his usual self, what we learn is horses are not machines and they can be beat if the right circumstances arise.  If you haven't seen the race, here it is

Farewell to Modern Family - My sympathies to the Modern Family team and their connections on the loss of their horse.  As you know Modern Family passed in the race paddock immediately after the MLT.  No reason as of now has been given.  It is a tough game racing as the horses are living, breathing animals.  Just as we occasionally hear about the healthy human athlete who drops dead suddenly, our equine athletes are no different.  The Gods of Racing can be smiling at you or they can be cruel and crush you.  Hopefully as time goes on, the memories will become sweet.
