Fusaichi Pegasus

Next weekend is the Belmont Stakes, the 3rd leg of the Triple Crown for Thoroughbreds in the United States. Put aside any ill feeling about race horses for a moment. I agree with most of you but on the other hand, I started in the TB business. I still float a few race horses but the industry is nothing like it was in the 70’s when I got my start. In fact, I started in 1973, the year Secretariat won the Triple Crown. In 2000, Fusaichi Pegasus was the winner of the Kentucky Derby. I was his dentist when he raced in NY. I have a great story about our short time together – just ask me about it when I see you.

Today I worked on this grandson of Fusaichi Pegasus. There were a lot of FuPeg’s personality in this boy – bold, confident, intelligent, and one whose respect you had to earn. These are all parts of a champion.

I also spent some time at Morgan’s chicken farm where Melissa worked on her mini horse. While she worked I followed the rooster and hens as well as a new chick. Here are some of the shots in the gallery below.
