Frank DeFord did a nice piece on Metro Meteor for his weekly segment on NPR this morning:

Metro has raised nearly $45K for retired racehorses-how awesome is that?

Cute story this morning. Metro somehow managed to puncture his lip overnight. His vet came out this morning to stitch it up, then turned to Ron and said, "no painting for 3-5 days." As Ron wrote: "I bet that is the first time a veterinarian has ever said that."

Metro is hanging up his paintbrush and moving to a new farm. It had to be a tough decision for his owners.

metro RIP last month. :(

One of the vets made the owner some paintbrushes out of his mane hair, and his ashes were spread at SAR and his "art studio" etc.
