The other day at Barn 55, Gilbert was there ready to work. He
does horse dental work for some of my pals at the barn.
Well, he truly came prepared with his ZENYATTA CAP. Around the brim,
he has all of the different jockey figures and pins he has collected in relation
to certain races, horses and people in the industry. It is really a very unique
I know that the DEL MAR HAT CONTEST was last Wednesday….but in my
opinion, GILBERT’S cap is a real winner!
Happy ‘Hump Day’! Dottie tells me this is a reference used by people when
working a normal business week…Monday through Friday. Wednesday is the
mid-point…thus, you only have 2 days until the weekend.
This is TOO CUTE! In our industry, Wednesday often begins the racing week!
Interesting, how differences occupations can have such varying schedules. I
think that is what makes life so much FUN!
Hugs to All~

Hi Zenny & Dottie. Well, big girl, “Hump Day” (love it!) kicked off with Frankel’s STUPENDOUS win against the great Canford Cliffs in the Sussex Stakes. No question that Bobby is looking after the beautiful Frankel who, like my love, Nijinsky, wears a white heart on his brow. Bobby is Frankel’s angel, Zenny, just like the angel John put on your bridle each time you raced to bring you home safe and sound. I’m sure Dottie must be thinking of Bobby today and the eloquence of a great horse running to his 8th straight victory in Bobby’s memory. There’s a better tape of Frankel’s race up on YouTube now & this one has some super commentary — Frankel is said to be a greater “miler” than the brilliant & well-loved Brigadier Gerard. High praise indeed!
I LOVE GILBERT’S HAT! It’s great to have this photo of him wearing it with such pride in your collection, Zenny!
@ Gloria Jean: I voted!!!
Love the hat on Gilbert…. love you and Dottie….. yes, it is hump day…I am semi-retired so this day does not mean what it did years ago. But I remember thinking many times…thank goodness it is Wed. Hugs to you Z….. enjoy the beautiful outdoors.
Goodmorning Precious Zenny.
What an awesome hat!! I’m heading to Del Mar today… Wish me luck. Have a great Weds. Stay cool! Love YOU OOOXXX
Gilbert’s hat is “One of a Kind” just like you Z!!! If he add’s more pins that hat will have to be weighted! It’s a winner in my book.
Happy “hump day” to you, DOTTIE and everyone!!
Hi, sweet girl….did ya see the race between Frankel and Canford Cliffs at the Glorious Goodwood Sussex Stakes? Wow! Wasn’t that a terrific race? Here’s a link for your fans to watch:
Have a great day…..hope you and your baby bump can keep cool! Love you!! Ann Maree
great hat! happy grazing Zenyatta, enjoy the day!
that hat is outstanding
I can’t believe this. I spent a lot of time last evening on trying to get a Shirreff’s cap. Besides being a huge Zenyatta fan, I think the world of her John, Dottie and the Zenyatta team. I think I read that John was at the track when Mr. Commons ran with his training color cap and Zenyatta on the back of the cap. I was lucky enough to see Mr. Commons working out for the Preakness and that weekend met John and Dottie. Any idea how I can get a cap with John’s colors on it? Thank you.
Nice hat. Hope you are cool and comfy with your BFF TT. Love you and love to all of you, Judy and Russ
Love that hat!! It is a winner just like you! Enjoy your day in the blue grass!!
Dear Abigail and Ann Maree:
Thanks for video links on Franklin. I posted one on Diary #305 if you want to check it out. It’s good seeing the race from different angles. Sure Bobby’s smiling. Hugs, J.B.
@Today’s Baby Bump Boxes for a Buck……………07-27-11 (12:30 pm est.)
There are four Baby races today, two each at DM & SAR. I think I will play them all. Go deep to start the week, a football analogy since they finally agreed to something and they all start back to work this week. I would rather see the debt ceiling fall then have no football, LOL
@Gilbert – Nice Hat – I need to go put on my thinking cap so I can handicap.
Race 3 – Small field – $5.00 WIN on #4 “Hard Nosed” (note: if the odds go below 2-1 with 2 minutes to post I will pass the race and void the bet)
Race 5 – 10 horse field – this one we can box –
#3 “Doctor Chit”, #6 “Sark”, & #7 “Arthur”
$1.00 Triple Box – 3, 6, 7 = $6.00
@DEL MAR –
Race 1 – Small field – $5.00 WIN on #3 “Hot Ride” (note: if the odds go below 2-1 with 2 minutes to post I will pass the race and void the bet)
Race 8 – 10 horse field – we are boxing this one too
#2 “Jessakar”, #6 “Courtney’s Prize”, & #8 “Tony’s Pinguini’s”
$1.00 Triple Box – 2, 6, 8 = $6.00
$22 bet -$46.00 starting the day, Good Luck, Ze are due.
I LOVE GILBERT’S HAT!!! AWESOME, BABY! My favorite hat is my Breeder’s Cup Zenyatta hat…I have many horse/farm hats, but yours is my favorite! Have a great day! Can’t wait for the Haskell on Sunday..who’s gonna win it?!! Much love!
Dear Z– what a hat! Love it!
Just watched the Frankel video–what a powerhouse. That brings up a question. When horses come from the UK to race here, do they have to be re-trained to go the other way around the track?
Kathryn Cogswell–I know what you mean. If I send something to our daughter 10 blocks awa here in Waco, it has tyo go to Austin and back first!! I was in rehab yesterday too (shoulder).
@Barbara Grimaldi– I love your “I’m aspiring to it”.
@Lil in KY-will surely pray for your dear friend Catherine. Please update as you can. Also will pray for your surgery.
@Susan in TN– please keep plenty of water handy!
Dear Gary Moulton: From “Let It Ride”, “Maybe you’re walking around lucky and don’t even know it”. Hope so. Hugs, J.B.
Hi Zenny, happy Hump Day to you too!! I love Gibert’s hat! It is great! I hope you have a wonderful day.
Love to all,
Dear Gloria Jean:
I cast my vote for Z. Hugs, J.B.
Dear Terry Crow:
Waiting for today’s joke. Hugs, J.B.
Can we get a hat like that somewhere? My dad would truly ROCK IT! He is a big time racing fan and we’re all Zenny
