Funny how time passes. This Friday, July 31, 2015, our BJ's Angel runs again at Canterbury. While pulling up the PPs for the race, I came across an old win picture that just happened to be taken exactly 10 years earlier on July 31, 2005. Here is that picture of our two year old, The KB Kid, winning the Timeless Prince Stakes. Our entire family was at a family reunion back then so about 30 of us watched this race on monitors in a Billings Montana betting parlor. The KB Kid was arguably the best MN Bred 2 year old ever, going undefeated in 4 races that year and winning 3 stakes races in the process.
I enjoyed seeing the Thesing's, Randy and the Hoffrogge's back in 2005 picking up the trophy for us. Of course, they haven't aged a day.
It will be a "real" Blue Moon (based on the original definition) Friday night. Maybe we will see you there.
