1. I like the connections you made – especially cool that you got to hang out with your dad at the racetrack. I know so many people today balk at things like that, but it is a unique experience and it brought you fond memories; all good 🙂

      Thanks, Stephanie, so nice to see you here! And yes, it was definitely a strange experience hanging out with the cabbies at OTB – but honestly – I believe looking at life from all angles gives us a richer experience. Thanks again for the insight.

  2. Something about horses and riding that seems so glamorous to me. Guess that’s why I love Regencies and such. I think this is a movie that I’ll wait for on TV, though. Although I liked that one with Toby Maguire a few years ago, the name of which is now escaping me!

      Hi Taryn,
      Yes, I agree, the horse business is very glamorous and I love reading about it. And that movie was Seabiscuit – another all time favorite of mine about heart!

  3. Nice piece of writing. You are in the winner’s circle. You have published books.

    Do Not Listen to the Naysayers! YOU CAN DO IT! Maybe the reason Secretariat was so successful is because she is a horse and couldn’t understand all the people saying she couldn’t do something. She just went about her business and did it!

    Great post, Jen. Just the shot of encouragement I needed today. I’m off to the races, er, I mean the writing. Thanks!
