Waiting and wondering has been a theme throughout these blogs.
Though the weather is heating up, the racing action is cooling down.
Grady. It’s a simple name: masculine, rugged, strong. It sounds like a good name for a boxer. . . a ranch hand. . . a longshoreman. Or a racehorse who made 104 starts and ran until he was 11 years old.
Tom Voss sat on a chair outside the tack room at his Saratoga barn. A few feet away, 2010 champion steeplechaser Slip Away stood getting his feet done, rider Paddy Young holding the shank and scratching the big gray's nose. Voss has one of those shedrows in which everyone is usually someone. Not too many unfamiliar names taped to the stall doors.
We received word from Alex Brown that former Pensioner Torbay is still out and about.
Gary Murray will be on the farm in Maryland, trying to get something done about a horse, a piece of equipment, a fencepost, anything and he’ll see Tom Voss.“I see him every day at home on the farm, in a tractor shed grumbling about something, trying to fix something that’s broken 15 times,” said Murray, Voss’ son-in-law, on a Tuesday morning at Saratoga. “I might try to do the same things he did, but I don’t have the same skills as Tom.”

Which Mid-Atlantic-bred horses have won the middle jewel of the Triple Crown? Cindy Deubler has the list:
We know you were wondering which Midlantic-bred horses have won the Kentucky Derby. Here's the list:
Jay Trump’s sweep of Maryland’s three major timber races, the first time in 17 years, culminated with a second consecutive Maryland Hunt Cup victory.
The Thoroughbred world suffered a great loss with the death of Richard Small this past weekend. Read Vinnie Perrone's award-winning story from the February 2009 Mid-Atlantic Thoroughbred of this Maryland icon. He captured the man like no one else ever could:
This weekend the Elkridge-Harford Point-to-Point runs at the Voss family's Atlanta Hall in Monkton, Maryland. The locals call them The Voss Races. Mostly due to one man's overwhelming influence on the event, Tom Voss. This past January, the industry lost this great horseman and friend. He will be notably missed by many who attend tomorrow's event. We dug into our archives for Joe Clancy's August 2002 story.
