Brice Blanc took a break with his son, Maxime, at Clockers' Corner on Christmas Eve. I had the opportunity to chat with Brice for a few minutes, and I was impressed by his warmth and cheerfulness.
As someone who loves horseracing, I really admire the dedication of the wonderful people who work directly with the horses every day, from season to season, the year around. There's no break from the care and training of our equine athletes. It may be Christmas, but the horses still need to be fed, trained, walked, bedded down, and cared for just like any other of the 365 days of the year.
So today, on Christmas Day, I offer my thanks to all of the grooms, hotwalkers, trainers, assistant trainers, exercise riders, jockeys, and all who give their best to the horses -- and make it possible for the rest of us to enjoy the excitement of Santa Anita's Opening Day tomorrow, and every other race day! Happy Holidays!
