Horse racing lost a great horseman and even better man as Steve Willard has passed away. Publicly you might know him as Zenyatta's exercise rider and that he was a huge part of Team Zenyatta's success. For those that knew him personally and were around him he will be best remembered as a kind, generous, loving person who loved his job and the people and horses he worked with. I feel honored to have been able to call Steve my friend and i'm a better person for knowing him. RIP Brother.

I can’t stop crying right now. Shared Belief was one of the greatest and most special horses that I have ever ridden. Every day I woke up looking forward to being reunited with him. I am so thankful that I got to be part of his life. My thoughts and prayers go out to the connections as I know they are hurting too. RIP Champ.

A week removed from the 2015 Breeders’ Cup, we’ll leave you with one more BC-related #FlashbackFriday to hold you over until next year’s event at The Great Race... Place.

On this day in 1993 in the Breeders’ Cup Mile at Santa Anita Park, Lure and Mike Smith won the Breeders’ Cup Mile to become the fourth horse to win consecutive Breeders’ Cup races. Lure would be retired the following year, but Smith would continue to rack up Breeders’ Cup wins, most recently aboard Songbird in this year’s BC in Keeneland.

Very sad to hear the news about Beholder. Incredible mare that I know all fans of our sport were looking forward to watching run on Saturday. Glad she is in the hands of classy connections that made the best decision for her.

Seeing purple everywhere. Something going on in Lexington?
