I love horse racing.   Don’t ask, couldn’t tell you why, considering I am afraid of horses but deeply touched by them.  Moovies involving horses always make me cry.  Embarrasing sometimes, especially on a first date!

SECRETARIAT, SEABISCUIT, PHAR LAP,BLACK STALLION, BARBARO  crushed me.  I was devasted when  Horses and their trainers and owners often have powerful stories.  OURASI in France was the epitomy of courage and will to win, a role-model of it’s own.

The Tripple Chase is a must-see for moi.  And the Kentucky Derby an apotheosis.   Go boys!  You are the living Pegasus!

  1. Have you seen The Horse Whisperer? Different from horse racing, but very touching and emotional. As a horse rider myself, I have always had a hard time watching it till the end. So powerful!

  2. Of course! I read the book first when it came out. Make sure you rent the « Wild Horse Redemption », a 2009 documentary.
    Animal Kingdom won the race by surprise, flying his way to the post. Briliant and unexpected. Race is online.
