Thank you for your patience! You may have noticed – or not, and that’s okay, too – we’ve been gone since right before the year-end holidays.
What the heck happened?
My access to write and post articles here to The Horsey Set Net crashed. (To you WordPressers, I couldn’t access my dashboard.)
For readers, nothing was amiss. You could search and read the blog and have no idea, except the dateline on that previous post, that something was amiss.
I couldn’t figure out what went wrong. I tried to repair it, but the problem was way over my head, basically deep in the wiring of the blog.
Even worse? I couldn’t reach any of you loyal readers to tell you we were having technical difficulties.
I sent out hails to my various brain trusts; i.e., writer’s groups.
As usual, I spent some time at the Massachusetts Equine Affaire. You’ll see more about that in upcoming posts, perhaps spread across the winter to ease the malaise from all the cold and ice.
Anyway, at Equine Affair’s Lexington, Kentucky, convention and visitors booth, I picked up a hot tip, especially if you plan to attend the 2015 Breeder’s Cup races at Keeneland.
You may have noticed I haven’t been posting as often as I was. I’m so grateful to you all for reading and subscribing, so you should know a bit of what’s been going on. Several of my writer pals have stopped blogging. Perhaps you’ve wondered if I stopped, too?
Update on The Book
Thank you, NBC Sports, for updating us viewers during the broadcast about Clenor, the filly jockey Tyler Baze pulled up in the Senorita Stakes at Santa Anita Park.
Instead of leaving us wondering and thinking the worst, your announcers told us during the live telecast that she was fine.
A check of trainer Doug O’Neil’s Twitter feed confirms it. Shortly after the race, O’Neill tweeted:
On Sunday night, Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner California Chrome went home to kisses, hugs and carrots at Los Alamitos Race Course.

We’ve seen his arrivals at Pimlico and Belmont Park, each with growing excitement and entourage, but the affection for him at Los Alamitos, among his everyday friends, almost doesn’t need a musical soundtrack.
