The “Why”…

I have lost track of the times someone asked me, “Why (on earth) did you leave Johns Hopkins to come to the racetrack…?”  The humorous responses I never used, would have been much more interesting story.   It’s tempting to say, “I just really love being around horses.” and insinuate that truism is enough to dedicate the commitment demanded by a life in racing.   That’s just not true, at least not entirely.  Contrary to popular belief, the word “truism” is not simply a more elegant synonym for “truth” .  Truism means,  well…. a cliche, a platitude, something so obvious it’s not worth mentioning.  Watch this video….

…and I will tell you my why tomorrow.

PS.  This really is a must see…

    I am curious also…since I never got an explanation and it was like you just dropped off the earth…
