Re: Dance Line

Hi Cindy,  I had the exact same thoughts as you did.  I already knew that
my/our words would fall on deaf ears.  I have seen quite a few "Howards"
over the years.  I cringed when I read his words of racing too.
Unfortunately for Dance Line, Howards ego is not very nourishing  nor
hydrating to a tired horse.  I do hope that Dance is doing well and Howard
learned a tremendously gut wrenching yet important lesson.    Our motto " to
finish is to win " has a depth of meaning that can only come from experience
and common sense.  One can rarely  go wrong remembering those words as you
go down the trail.
