OH....how we do love to RUN! Photo by John Shirreffs

Happy Friday to All!

MY JOHN did get some great images of TASTY and I while he was here visiting several days ago. I hope you enjoy them. He wanted to get a variety of photos…so you could share in the many activities which make up our day here at Lane’s End.

Basically, we eat, sleep, play, get tons of attention and grooming, and LOVE TO RUN! I guess one never gets too far from his / her roots…and ours, being that we are thoroughbred race horses, means we are bred to run. I must say…we have great FUN doing so!

HMMMM…..I hope our ‘babies to be’ inherit the passion we have for exercise, training, and running! HOOVES CROSSED! I know one thing for sure, both TASTY and I will set a very positive example and role model for our foals.

On the racing front, there are several very competitive stakes taking place this weekend. At DELTA DOWNS, the races at this venue highlight the action. With the graded stakes earnings from one singular race for 2 year olds, The Delta Jackpot which has a purse of $1,000,000, the winner and possibly the 2nd horse will earn enough graded stakes money to qualify for the 2012 Kentucky Derby field. So for this reason alone, this Grade 3 event becomes quite significant and one to follow. It has definite ramifications for next year’s 3 year old DERBY contenders and the graded stakes money one needs to ultimately qualify for the field.

I must say, our business is one of always looking ahead and thinking about the future! That is truly something that adds to the FUN and EXCITEMENT OF OUR SPORT!

Good Luck to all runners this weekend and their connections.

May ALL of you have a wonderful time as well.

With Love,
Hugs to All~


  1. Hey Girlfriend,

    You look mah–velous. :) Happy Thanksgiving to you and everyone at the farm. I wish nothing but the best, sweetie. You and Tasty look so cute running together.


  2. That’s GORGEOUS:)

  3. Oh, my, this is a gorgeous photo of the two of you. I love how your tail lifts when you’re excited, like when you first went off lead in your paddock at LE. Love you always, Z
