Originally, I didn't have one because I'm a bit slow to embrace all new technology (fuddy-duddy Ludite? :P ).
Now, with all we know about the ways Facebook and its ilk steal and sell our personal info, I'm feeling kind of smart. 20-20 hindsight. :lol:

I only signed up to Facebook last year because I had to for a new job and I hate it
Ask me any questions you have about New Zealand and Australia racing

Good read, thanks for sharing.
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Love it! I know you are cherishing each day with all of them, but Border Run is special to all of us. And wow, Terlingua --rocket ship!
I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.

Great article, Curtis!

There was an end of season party at the barn yesterday, including a celebration of the retirement of three special horses - among them one of your favorites, the amazing Archie. He had folks lining up for him, and the winner is the same family that adopted the racing club's first horse (DY has turned into quite the eventer). They are longtime friends of the trainer and I'm sure will be sending pictures as he learns his new job. Archie's certainly one of the nicest horses I've ever met, and the barn won't be the same without him!

They’re like kids......no favorites allowed, but I know Border Run is special to many here so that’s why I share the information. I’m also glad AY gets a plug. I’ve had him going on 17 years. He’s taught me a lot. He was as game as they come on the track. When he and Border canter about their pasture, AY makes sure his head is in front. Caring for those two and Harley are my daily meditation.

I'm with you, Treve. And Curtis, thanks so much for keeping us updated on Border Run. It's a joy to read about him and to know how well loved and pampered he is! Turns out, everybody is lucky - and that's a good story.
