Genuine Risk: The Nature of Promises

By Posted on 2 Comments 4 min read 1082 views

We have barely a month left in 2018, and I’d promised myself I would finish my mystery novel by the end of the year–so, no blogging, Rhonda!–but I feel compelled to write about what I’d held as a private memory of a moment paying my respects to Genuine Risk.

This look back began on Black Friday 2018, when a racing photographer I follow on Facebook posted condolences regarding the passing of a Virginia horsemen I’d met during that Virginia Hunt Country Stable Tour I took in 2009.

Over on Twitter, I like to keep an eye out for interesting horse things that pop up into my status feed. I forward them, aka retweet or RT, to those who follow my Twitter feed.

You guys who only follow my blog miss all those goodies. But don’t worry – I intend to keep you better up-to-date.

I used to write a series of posts I called the Twitter Round-Up. I think it’s time we revived that tradition.

That said, here are some of my Tweets from August – with a little set-up for some.

Part 3 of the Virginia Hunt Country Stable Tour series

On the second day of our Virginia Hunt Country Stable Tour, we rolled out of our Chantilly hotel and drove west on US 50 with the knowledge that we were racing stormy weather.

And we had a big plans, too – a farm with endurance Arabians, the former home of a late Kentucky Derby winner, a stable of English shires and an afternoon capped by polo.

But would we beat the impending storms that loomed over us like the overcast sky and muggy air?
