Spring has Sprung

Posted in My Thoughts at 9:09 pm by Thomas

Finally Spring seems to be upon us, which is a good thing considering the opening day of Keeneland is only 5 days away and Rolex less then 4 weeks.  While we are counting down, the 2014 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games is only 511 days away but that topic I will take up another day, back to Spring in Kentucky.

Spring in Kentucky is always a magical time, the transformation from the browns of Winter to all the amazing colors of plants and trees blooming is one to behold.  Of course there is also the many new foals frolicking around enjoying their first Spring.  Everyone of those foals is a living thing that embodies the hopes and dreams of someone, whether that is a Backyard Owner or a Thoroughbred Trainer hoping to win the 2016 Kentucky Derby.  For me this is my 30 Spring in Kentucky and I always feel so blessed to get to experience this renewal each year because it is something I feel deep in my soul.
