Cat on a Horse Blog with Justify -
Embed from Getty ImagesCongratulations to American Triple Crown winner Justify and all his connections, especially jockey Mike Smith! Justifiably CHAMPIONS! Anyway, a lot of mention was made on TV yesterday of “where were you when Pharoah won the Triple Crown?” Pretty much the same place as I was then, except MacGuyver and I switched seating Continue Reading

Justify and TV Coverage of Horse Racing -
I meant to write a post about 2018 Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes winner AND Triple Crown contender Justify, let alone tell you where and when you can to watch the Belmont Stakes on TV. But I veered off into a tangent about racing coverage on TV, inspired by Justify’s shot at history. It all Continue Reading

Behind-the-Scenes Changes Here -
Big corporations have taken a couple of years to do this, to update their websites to compliancy with the General Data Protection Regulations set by the European Union, a.k.a., GDPR. As usual, the information trickled down to us little guys late enough in the game we have a few weeks before the May 25 deadline Continue Reading

Wherein We Post Where and When to Watch the 2018 Kentucky Derby and Other Updates -
Somehow, in a span of hours, we went from snow here in New England to 2018 Kentucky Derby week. Of course, I’m mentally ready, but not physically. Or maybe it’s vice versa? I’ve been a little distracted. Case in point? I missed telling you about the 2018 Kentucky Derby Post Position Draw. For good or Continue Reading

?Horses Have a Way of Getting Inside You:? Farewell, William Nack -
Embed from Getty Images Penny Chenery, Secretariat’s human mom, and William Nack, the Triple Crown winner’s Boswell, at the premiere of the film “Secretariat.” No. Wait–Bill Nack as Boswell? Really? Way too flippant to start this piece. Start over, Rhonda. And don’t try to get fancy. You can’t play in Bill Nack’s league. I’m not Continue Reading

Hidden Dark, Ferdinand?s daughter, passes at Old Friends -
I don’t see any reference to Hidden Dark’s passing in such horse racing media such as the Blood Horse or The Paulick Report. Granted, 1995 Florida Derby and Travers Stakes champion Thunder Gulch passed away, so he’s better known. Also, as I read Hidden Dark’s bio on the Old Friends website, I can’t say I’m Continue Reading

Why Horseless #SXSW Should Worry You -
Not long after I began blogging ten (?) years ago, I heard about bloggers attending and learning at South By Southwest, aka SXSW. Like an annual World’s Fair with a touch of the Texas State Fair Does Tomorrowland, SXSW has expanded into a glimpse into the future for both the arts and technology. What I Continue Reading

Where were the Clydesdales? -
On the day after Super Bowl LII, one of my friends posted to her personal timeline on Facebook: “So where are my Clydes?” She’s not the only one asking. (Click the links to see the images each Tweeter added.) I miss the #clydesdales commercials pic.twitter.com/Rme8L1OHRw ?

Retirement of Thoroughbred Race Horse Artic Storm Cat -
Artic Storm Cat, New York’s popular white thoroughbred racehorse who often upstaged everyone at Gary Contessa’s Saratoga stable, retired to a new career. His rare white–as listed on his registration papers–coat attracted attention at the track. What charmed fans and built his own fan base was his people-lovin’ personality.
