Justify: Defeating a Curse, Youth, and the Weather

34745525_10212625167451887_1710849644826722304_nIt’s a strange situation that racing finds itself in: we’re on the cusp of another potential Triple Crown, and compared to the Pharoah fever in 2015, the reception this year has been a bit lackluster. At times, it almost feels like we’re going into Belmont weekend without the storied three-race series on the line, and that there isn’t a stand-out among the sophomore class this year.

Derby Trail Preview: Enticed

Enticed was foaled March 23rd, 2015 to the flashy mare It’s Tricky after her visit to Medaglia d’Oro. A Coolmore homebred, he carries the hopes of the international titan that they’ll be able to add the Kentucky Derby trophy to their office case this year. In the past, Coolmore has come to play with expensive and well-bred horses; how could Enticed be different? He’s the product of two of the farm’s best performers both on track and in the breeding shed.

In Loving Memory: Penny Chenery

Near this spot
Are deposited the Remains of one
Who possessed Beauty without Vanity,
Strength without Insolence,
Courage without Ferocity,
And all the Virtues of Man without his Vices.
