Landaluce Educe Racing's 2013 Broodmare Band Portraits [14:02]
BROODMARE PORTRAIT PHOTO SHOOT This video captures the effort and manner by which all of our broodmares and N1 had their portraits taken in February. The goal is to get the filly in full sunlight with the dark background of the barn to help her stand out and provide definition. The filly's head is angled between 20 and 45° for two different photos. One will show the brass nameplate on the halter and the other is more of a head-on shot. The photo is taken at an angle to give depth perception to the filly's body. Shown in this session are: The groom, Tina who was drafted to work the reflector, Wendy - Matt's wife and a talented photographer but today is working on getting the horses attention to get their ears perked and alert, and Matt taking the photos. The reflector puts soft light on the dark side of the filly to highlight the brass nameplate on the halter and gives light to the filly's eye. Wendy has a recording of various barnyard animals to grab the horse's attention. It is a process, but when the moment is right a portrait to remember is captured. Niji's Grand Girl (Candy Ride), Volcat (After Market), Mazzy (Giant's Causeway), and Niji's Foal (Giant's Causeway) each have their portraits taken. The video is 14 minutes long, but captures all that went into the hour spent getting the portraits. Music: Groove Armada - 'Edge Hill,' 'Little By Little,' 'My Friend.'

2013 So Farrrrrr [03:46]
2012 ended with me in hospital with horrible abdominal pains and I then had exams, leading to a long break from riding. This was ended until the snow came because snow is mean to people. But today we went out competing again - yay! And George is back to his old self (we got 9 strides down a 12 horse stride related distance). Went clear in the showjumping phase, but lost my stirrup over fence 3, leading to him swerving out in front of one of the XC fences, so I fell off and he trod on me. i don't blame him though and he was jumping impeccably so I shan't complain, he felt absolutely amazing :) Harvey has been out 3 times this week and I think we've cracked how to travel him and keep him happy. The schooling clip you see is the first ride back after the snow and he was verrrrry fresh! He's coming along amazingly now, and I did have some footage of the last couple of weeks but my SD card was lost at my friend's party. he's been doing simple changes and we just need to get him going FORWARD. This feels strange as usually I'm on a time bomb pony who aspires to be a rocket. But I have clear aims for them both this year and I think they're all within reach, just have to get out there and do it now! AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH :)

1995 Blue Grass Stakes [12:23]
While the power horses of East and West stalked and chased, and while a medical miracle named Randy Romero hunched down in the saddle, a 30-1 long shot named Wild Syn led every step of the way today to win the Blue Grass Stakes by 2 1/2 lengths over Suave Prospect. And, while doing so, he royally scrambled the traffic on the road to the Kentucky Derby. No horse in the race was given less chance to win, yet no horse in the race ever got in front of him. He simply set a tantalizing pace that no jockey challenged, and at the end of a mile and one-eighth he still had the lead over some of the ranking candidates for the Derby: Suave Prospect, who held off the late run by Tejano Run by the length of his head, and then Thunder Gulch two lengths farther back. No match race developed between Thunder Gulch and Suave Prospect, as expected. No winning drive to the wire in the homestretch by Tejano Run, as expected. No clarifying of the Derby picture, as expected. And with the Canadian champion Talkin Man blitzing the field in the Wood Memorial at Aqueduct in New York -- three weeks after he won the Gotham -- the Derby sweepstakes underwent a mighty one-day shakeout. Instead, at the picturesque Keeneland track in the heart of the horse country, it was all Wild Syn. He was running in only his second stakes race, guided by a jockey who retired last year after a career filled with injuries and at least three comebacks and saddled by a 26-year-old trainer, Thomas Arnemann. Not only that ...
