I used to watch the great Dave Gall walk wintry surfaces two hours before post time, scraping and prodding with his shoes. Nowadays, any rider so engaged likely would be concerned with safety and...

Flu and shingles. Got them Thursday, one in each arm, and felt that night like I'd been dropped from a building into a furnace. Outer bicep (on shingles side) still aches like big rhino bum rushed...

When I worked as a placing judge, we matched the finish- slit up to the mirror's center. Somehow, it always shifted, and with us reluctant-especially during winter-to trudge across the surface, it...

I meant that Secretariat was in his prime when Prove Out beat him.
