Rest easy old-timer. You deserve it.

I was on the rail at the BC, many of the outriders brought their horses over for railbirds to pet.

Lava Man was not brought too close though, because by himself he was on the muscle and looked ready to roll, better than some of the racing types that day. He knew what the race track meant. Cool horse.

I'm sure he thought he was in.

All those Grade 1's and yet he doesn't need anyone to bring him lunch!

Now that's class!!

No doubt I owe the biggest debt of gratitude regarding my career to him and the Devine Miss Z.
