"We need heroes. And since we need them so badly, we've decided to race Curlin this year. We want to give the fans and the industry what we need." - Jess Jackson at the Eclipse Awards last night.
Hmm, thanks Mr. Jackson but I wonder if Curlin wouldn't be headed to the breeding shed were it not for that pesky legal fiasco involving Curlin's hundreds of owners.
I'm resigning myself to the economically driven changes. I don't like it but it's become a fact of life.
For all you spec painters out there - good luck finding the "big horse" subject.
