Came and Went

Well that was quick.

Seems like the Breeder's Cup came quickly and than left quickly, nary any lingering stories to debate  or talk about.Nothing too surprising of note to come out of the day. I have taken a liking to 2 year old undefeated  Shanghai Bobby, having seen him win up at the Spa this summer but we know how Pletcher 2 year old's do as 3 year old's of late.

 Of course, its' all relative and from my vantage being eyeballs deep in Superstorm Sandy insurance claims, the BC just wasn't all that important to me this year.

Seeing the devastation Mother Nature brought upon the Northeast, especially the New Jersey-New York metro area has been unbelievable. I have been through many storms but this one is the worst. The recovery will be long and painful.

If you want to help the best thing to do is donate money to a legitimate charity organization that can properly allocate your funds to the relief effort. May I suggest the Red Cross at   www.redcross.org or if want a specific racing related charity you can donate to the New York Racetrack Chaplaincy at www.rtcany.org

Be well and have a great Thanksgiving.
