The very confused butterfly that fluttered about the main track. Just because you’re black and yellow like Man o’ War was doesn’t make you special, you dang drunk arthropod!
A special thanks go out to fourfurlongs who spent the entire weekend with me!

War Command will miss the Sussex Stakes at Goodwood, on Wednesday 30 July 2014, due to lameness.
Only four entries for this year’s Sussex: Kingman, Toronado, Darwin, and Outstrip.
Get better soon, War Command.
Safe trip to the remaining field.

⦁ "At first glance the small dark War Admiral did not seem to resemble his big red sire at all. Only the smouldering eye that flamed in the face of competition and the high, proud head showed any relationship. Yet of all Man o’ War's fine offspring this one, least like him in appearance, was most like him in performance. Nearly all the others would wait behind the pace and make their bid in the stretch. Only this small dark colt had speed both early and late, and liked to use it to the utmost. Both War Admiral and his sire were impatient at the restraint of the barrier and wanted to go to the front at once, pouring speed on speed until the opposition wilted.”
