****I AM PRETTY SURE HE IS SMILING
To my Dad there was nothing like the Kentucky Derby. He lived and breathed horse racing for as long as I can remember. He owned many horses and named them after his kids and grandkids. Horse Racing was his passion, his life. Last year, a jockey that rode for him many times, Calvin Borel, won a HUGE race, riding MINE THAT BIRD! I knew my Dad was smiling. My Dad died a few years ago, but some of my sweetest memories are seeing him at the track in his element. I can still see him, the exact place he stood during any race he had a horse in. He loved going to the paddocks watching them saddle the horses. He always had a racing form in his hand. And if his horse lost(and many did) I can still see him making his way to the jockey to see what went wrong. I can still remember his words if they ran bad, his HUGE SMILE, if one of them won. He loved to have family in the winners circle. We have a picture of Parker in the Winners Circle when he was three months old. So today I am thinking of you Daddy and I know you are watching. I wish I knew who you had your money on.
