What George Said…

I touched upon the highs and lows of trying to get to Cheltenham yesterday.

Constitution Hill first. Marine Nationale second. And I forgot Ferny Hollow, a talented tank, a fragile freak, he returned from a 791-day layoff to win a 2-mile Grade 3 chase on soft to heavy ground Feb. 25. He was in and then out. Another bump in his road. No Cheltenham this year.

And these are the ones at the top of the news cycle, the big barns, the ones glittered in lights. So many others, below the radar, trying to keep the dreams alive for the ultimate dreamers – steeplechase owners.

My friend George Baker said it best this morning.
