Each of the individual race trophies (which are big shiny things) is displayed on it's own ledge, each in a place of honor. The person with me in the house pointed out each of those trophies but said nothing about the Triple Crown trophy. Finally I asked about the triple crown trophy and she pointed to this angular, three sided silver bowl sitting in the middle of the dining room table with grapes, apples, and bananas in it. Cracked me up. Last time I saw it things had changed a bit. (It's now under glass and sits on motion detectors with who knows what other security measures). ON the other hand, if someone stole it, what could they do with it? There are only eleven of them and anyone that might want it would NEVER be able to tell that they had it.
    OK I'm pleading Keystone Light disease last night. Of course Assault the club footed comet. I hang my head in shame not knowing that right off the bat.

    He was a great horse, definitely top class. I encourage you to google Black Ruby mule. Its a good read. To me her story is similar to dogs. They don't all have to be at the most elite level to be considered great.
    Nether do trainers or posters on a forum?..Some are just natural born 'talkers', and some just get on on and do it?..I suppose.
