I hate when I am taking pictures from the side with that white-rimmed eye, because it makes her look nervous. Honestly, nothing could be farther from the truth. She was a super-cool customer. Very alert and aware and checking us all out (probably pushing three dozen people staring at her in the stall), but not nervous or fidgety at all. I am not waxing poetic--I swear, when they played the call to the post for the field she was schooling with, she pricked her ears and stepped forward. It was the one time she fidgeted. She's so smart and is so professional. It was fun to watch all the people in the paddock point and clap; no one left to go back to their seats for the next race.
