I’ve just got home from Longchamp, where I spent the day introducing a group of 40 people to the sport. We picked a great day for it, with the Group 1 French 1,000 and 2,000 Guineas races. Most in the group were Americans living in France, with a few British and French people thrown in for spice. It’s always fun to bring new people to the sport, and they seemed to really enjoy themselves. I’m hoping, of course, that some will want to take that next step and see their own colors out there on the track. But in any case, I can always talk endlessly about horses to anyone who will listen, and we seemed to have a very receptive audience on Sunday. So thanks to Mark for helping organize it all, and let’s hope we see some of these people at the track regularly from now on!
