    That is very impressive. Congratulations to Bill and Shadow
    The way I look at it, every dog is an opportunity to be a better trainer, and every day is a new day to be a better trainer to the same dog we trained yesterday.

    Reminds me of some recent discussions regarding Shadow as an underused and under appreciated sire and makes Mary and Bill look like geniuses for not only coming up with the breeding but also with the perfect storm of the breeding/ training team. Three starts and three wins at 13 months, is that some kind of record?
