HI, thanks for your awesome vote. Today is just a nomal day, nothing really going on. How about you? I love reading your blogs, I always look forward to them everyday. My cousin and his girlfriend are getting married this Saturday, and we won't be able to make it; it is too close to Christmas, and it would be a long drive. It would have been my first wedding....Sad, I know:) hehe! Any special plans for Christmas? Hope so. Haha! Have a great day my special friend.

I will be doing some friend quotes at some points, some relate to horses!

~*~*~ *BROOMSTICK* ~*~*~
Broomstick (1901–1931) was a Thoroughbred race horse born and bred at the famous McGrathiana Stud in Kentucky, but more importantly, he was one of the great sires of American racing. Out of another great sire, the Hall of Famer Ben Brush, Broomstick went on after his racing career to produce champion after champion for many years. The important horseman, James R. Keene (who owned Domino, Kingston, Colin and Sysonby among so many other memorable horses), also owned Elf, Broomstick's dam. Believing she was barren, he sold her to Milton Young. One year later she foaled Broomstick. As a yearling Broomstick then went to a Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania coal millionaire named Captain Samuel S. Brown who was a member of The Jockey Club and the owner of two racetracks. Broomstick was small, but he won his first three stakes at two. Because of this, he was weighted down rather heavily for such a young horse and consequently won fewer races at that age. He placed in the Saratoga Special, the Walden Stakes, the Flatbush Stakes, the Great Trial Stakes and the Spring Stakes. At three, and under another trainer, he won the Travers Stakes. In the Brighton Handicap he beat older horses and set a record that stood for nine years. In that race he was up against the truly game Irish Lad who broke down nearing the wire, but finished on three legs, only barely beaten. Still heavily weighted, he placed in the Merchants and Citizens Handicap, the Hindoo Handicap, and his second Saratoga Special. At four his only important effort was a place in the Century Handicap.

Have a great day, and thank you for reading my blogs :D Love ya!
