Good morning, and welcome to this week’s Planet Equestrian.
We delve into exactly why Hunterland’s most notorious (but sadly far from only) horse-dopers Kelley Farmer and Larry Glefke think we should all be “grateful” to them, complete with (unbelievably) a full-length self-justifying YouTube video (and TBH our editorial position on gratitude to Farmer/Glefke is that h*ll will freeze over first). We look at which horses are shaping up to be serious Kentucky Derby contenders as the exciting Road to the Kentucky Derby continues this weekend with the Sam F. Davis Stakes. We pay tribute to two lovely horses who left us too soon. And of course, bring you all the news and results you need to know from every equestrian discipline. As one of our Twitter followers put it recently, “the thrill of victory, the agony of defeat all in one blog!” (Thank you, you know who you are.) Click here to go to Planet Equestrian.
