Lookin' Tough: Country Tough Schools at Santa Anita

Country Tough in the Santa Anita paddock with groom Lionel Molina.

I snapped a photo of one of my favorites, Country Tough, as he schooled in the paddock at Santa Anita Wednesday afternoon during the races. Country Tough is entered to run in Thursday's 5th race, a starter allowance at one mile on the turf. He won his last race, a maiden claiming event at one mile on the all-weather track, on Dec. 30 at Santa Anita.

Country Tough is trained by Howard Zucker for Dream Walkin Farms, Inc., a partnership that includes country music star Toby Keith and major league pitcher Brad Penny.

Have you ever been lucky enough to meet Toby Keith or Brad Penny, Mary?

I've gotten to know Brad Penny pretty well, and he's a great guy! Never met Toby Keith.
