Over at The Racing Biz, we’ve been looking back at a few of our “favorite things” from 2013 — favorite stories, pictures and videos that have appeared on our pages.
- This great video from Jeff Krulik that shows the excitement and emotion of winning a big race, as Immortal Eyes upsets the De Francis, much to the joy of owner Bobby Abbo (here);
- Teresa Genaro’s Alabama day diary with Princess of Sylmar and her connections. What a ride that group enjoyed during 2013, and this piece captures it — the excitement, the nerves, the joy, the gratitude. Check it here.
- Ben’s Cat is one of the region’s top horses, and over his career he’s provided thrill after thrill to owner/trainer/breeder King Leatherbury and his growing legion of fans. Photographer Laurie Asseo captured his exciting stretch run against Mr. Online — who suddenly became very good in this race and has continued to be very good since — with this frame-by-frame series (here).
There’s plenty more in the series, too, and more still to come as we continue to run “favorite things” through Saturday, at The Racing Biz.
