Cot Campbell runs a group of racing partnerships in the United States called Dogwood Stables. I met him two years ago at the Breeders’ Cup in Santa Anita when Aikenite was running in the Juvenile. He is playing in a completely different league than me, and I’m sure he won’t remember we ever met. We didn’t have a long conversation, but if we did we wouldn’t have seen eye to eye on a number of racing issues. But there are some things in this sport that bind us all, and Cot summed it all up perfectly in his most recent commentary. I urge all of you to give it a quick read. It is quite a day brightener on the shortest day of the year.
