Indianapolis 500 pays tribute to Dan Wheldon (5-27-2012) [01:14]
The start of Sunday's 96th Indianapolis 500 was preceded by an emotional tribute to last year's winner Dan Wheldon, who was killed in a horrific crash later in the season. The crowd, estimated at almost a quarter of million, paused in silence to remember the popular British driver, whose death in the season-ending race at Las Vegas continues to cast a pall over the sport. The car he drive to victory in last year's race was taken on a lap of the sprawling 2.5 mile track by team owner Bryan Herta. "There are a lot of people feeling Dan's loss," Herta told reporters earlier in the week. "It's still a difficult situation and it still feels fresh, but it's really nice to see the continued outpouring of support for Dan and his family and everything he has done for IndyCar." Wheldon's smiling face was featured on the official race day tickets and spectators were given white cardboard sunglasses, in memory of the loony white-framed glasses the Englishman often wore, to wear on laps 26 and 98 - representing the numbers of his winning cars at the race in 2005 and 2011. Wheldon's wife Susie and their two sons attended the race week. On Thursday, the drivers presented Susie with her husband's championship ring from last year. On Saturday, race officials gave her a replica of the winner's trophy. Wheldon won his first Indianapolis 500 in 2005 but it was his victory last year for which he will be best remembered. Despite finishing runner-up in America's greatest race in 2009 and 2010 ...

.:'Just Raise Your Glass':. [02:51]
Went riding the Tuesday that has just gone and thankfully the weather stayed nice for us. :DI rode Amo as usual but I also had a short trot on Blue; the pony my mum rides! She feels sooo different from Amo, plus, I feel so close to the ground! Ahh! And I may just get to ride her next lesson so fingers crossed! While I had a little ride on Blue, of course my mum needed another horse to ride for the time being. Soooo....she rode Amo! (although we didn't get ANY of this on camera since my grandad wandered off back to the car, haha) And of course, like everyone else I know, mum fell in love with her and has asked to ride her next lesson. So, basically we've swapped horses at the moment so I'm just gonna give you this heads up on who's riding who. :D Me and Amo also had a quick "Jockey Time" around the arena which we enjoyed very much. If you don't know what "Jockey Time" is then don't hesitate to ask. :D I'll be riding again on the 3rd of July (it feels so long away!) but hopefully the weather will continue to stay nice (its been on and off all week).

RTD WINS 3rd on 6.3.12.avi [09:24]
Ready To Defer WON the 3rd race on Sunday, June 3rd at Beautiful Belmont Park. He broke sharp from the 4 hole with Ramon Dominguez and never looked back! Ramon never moved his hands through fractions of 22, 45, 56! As the race progressed the margin steadily widened. At the top of the stretch he opened up an 8 length lead then in the words of the chart caller: "....Increased the lead from upper to mid-stretch, under a mild hand ride, got geared down at the 16th pole, allowed to complete the contest handily"... I think that about sums it up! He finished in 109 and 2! Sundays so far have been very good luck for PGR!! Congratulations to all! This is one awesome horse! Nice way to celebrate another weekend

Wholelottashakin ROCKS the 9th race on May 27th @ Belmont [08:03]
Wholelottashakin WON the 9th race on Sunday, May 27th at Beautiful Belmont Park. She broke sharp from the 5 hole with Javier, he put her in good position until about the 5/8ths pole where she almost ran up the leader's you know what... Javier had to jerk her head to get her to the outside - any other horse would have packed it in right there but she continued in stride. Javier saved ground behind the leaders, the favorite went wide and he went for the hole on the rail and the rest my friends, as they say, is history. She flew down the stretch and held off a repeated challenge from the fancy 4yo and prevailed under strong urging. She loves a little give in the ground and I think she likes the mile distance. Congratulations to all ~ certainly a nice way to celebrate the Holiday weekend!
