1979 Travers Stakes: CBS Broadcast [09:15]
Next to the Daily Racing Form listing of five of the seven starters in last Saturday's Travers Stakes at Saratoga was an asterisk indicating that those horses could handle a muddy track. The other two had no mud mark. When rain drenched the track, making the going difficult and tiring, bettors gave those marks and those non-marks considerable thought. They could have saved themselves the effort. One of the two without a mark was General Assembly, an enigmatic critter who went out and won the 110th Travers by 15 splashy lengths. The General has led a puzzling racing life, up one day and down the next. Racing fans adore him after one race and deride him after the next. Until last week's Travers he was known primarily as "Secretariat's best son," but that has meant very little because Secretariat has been anything but the sire he was expected to be when he was sent to stud after his stunning two years as a runner. Well, what General Assembly did in the Travers was stunning and more. He ran over a track rated "sloppy" in 2:00 for the 1� miles to set not only a stakes record but a track record as well, and Saratoga is the oldest track in the US, having opened its iron gates 116 years ago. The field the General left in his wake was the best group of 3-year-olds assembled since the Kentucky Derby. Not since Secretariat himself won the 1973 Belmont Stakes by 31 lengths has there been so overwhelming a triumph in a race of such high significance. But a question remains, one as ...

Its All About Chew 9 Days Of March [13:19]
"Now don't go fallin' in love with that horse." My take on that advice was always kept to myself, "I love them ALL. No use trying to explain, there's not a soul on earth that could comprehend or relate to my love for horses." Thirty eight years and thousands of horses later, It's All About Chew, the one that I refused to acknowledge or approve of even before her conception, became a direct part of my life. With my minds desire set on the younger filly, Stella, who's path in life will lead her opposite my direction, I coerced myself into focusing on "Choo" daily. It didn't take me long to realize that this never before handled, mean spirited, stand-offish, coming two year old filly by Royal Blew Chew Chew had a whole different side to her. During the five months I've spent with Choo she has not yet seized to astound me. Is she fast? I don't know, and she's not the prettiest horse I've ever seen... but she's by far the MOST expressive, fearless, patient, free spirited, and the smartest horse I've ever known! Her hateful, hostile disposition turned out to be kind, affectionate, and personable with an uninhibited nature that can spark everything from gut busting laughter, to jaw dropping awe that always leaves me craving more. Now the empty void, where Choo once dwelt, that I wake up to every day shows how naive I was and my new take on the "advice" that I have heard countless times throughout my life is not kept to myself and I believe it is used too loosely and not taken ...
