Triple Crown winning Jockey Victor Espinoza is focused on his recovery after a training accident on July 22nd, when the Hall of Fame rider was breezing a horse that collapsed during a morning workout. Although Victor has had such a successful career that he no longer rides in races as often as he used to, he currently has no plans to announce his retirement.
Out of all the unexpected good things to come out of Pharoahs TC
Horse Country Tours might be my favorite. I am headed back to KY at end of March for the Run the Bluegrass Half. And along with all the really cool and neat stuff they offer to their runners (ie one year they had a tour to see Rachel Alexandra I kid you not). I can finally easily book tours. Most of the major farms I’ve been to by now. Except Gainseway and that’s because in 2011 it was a pain to get a tour. So I passed on it. Guess who offer tours through HCT now? I am going to be stalking that site from here and until spring tour dates are posted
Goodbye to one of the most celebrated foals in racing history. Genuine Reward was aptly named, the first baby of the great Genuine Risk after so many unsuccessful attempts. Unraced, he still garnered legions of fans. He will be missed.
