    There must have been one honkingly big insurance premium paid to allow the horse to continue running. They are fragile animals that, many times, don't survive their racing injuries. Some company agreed to insure a $78 million horse for some - I have to believe - gigantic premium.

    I was surprised to hear the Coolmore purchase and all the more so that Justify will continue racing.
    The Breeder's Cup and Pegasus would add jewels to his crown though and fix a certain sparkle to a stellar record.

    I wouldn't be surprised if he also ran at the Travers at Saratoga - still a prestige race if a notch below the ones you mention.

    You meet someone later in life, you get on so well together, fact is, you're probably in love. All you need now is the courage to propose, perhaps you might need just a little help:

    This one's familiar for me as well. Our cat Shadow likes to fall asleep on my lap and I hate to have to wake her up when I need to get up to do something, but sometimes I just gotta' do what I gotta' do when I gotta' do it.

    People that young should NOT know how to move like that. That being said, I thought their performance was brilliant!

    I know. I know. Is this old enough? You must suffer the first two minutes, it's deliberate, so as to set the scene: Enjoy.

    My wife and I know a few people who would probably take issue with the age difference and/or the fact that they're grandmother and grandson. :rolleyes: I thought they were quite good, and if I reach the age of 92 I hope I can still move half as well as she can.

    They would probably choke on their pomposity if they saw Virginia.

    Waking up on the Oregon coast with not a thing having to be done for the next week. The smells, the sights, the sounds, what a life of relaxation. Great neighbors. Great eating and drinking. The best company, Lady ToE.
