Wow, Those red and green 'silks' provided a real thrill yesterday! (Saturday) Pluck won the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf (for two-year-old colts). Watch it here:

Well, perhaps a 'horse of a different color'!
PLUCK,Team Valor's entry in the Juvenile Turf is very dark bay-nearly black. His race will be run at 1:50 pm Eastern time, Saturday, Nov. 6th.
The Breeders' Cup World Championships 2010 takes place at Churchill Downs, in Louisville, KY. Nov 5 and 6.
You can watch them on ABC and/or ESPN. Pick your favorites, and enjoy a day at the races, from your living room, because it's going to be a very cold weekend !! We're expecting our first frost on Friday night.
The derby display (below) featured the horse and some of my dolls, in spring, 2006. All the jockeys (fifty of them!) were a special order and became corporate Christmas gifts for select clients! They were a real challenge, and never again will I commit to more than one of anything. Ha! But they were fun, too, and each had his own personality.

I made this doll a few years ago, and he reminded me so much of (step-?) uncle Ard, that I named him "Old Mr. Ardmore".
Seemed a logical subject for a Birthday Card on the occasion of Ard's ONE HUNDRED AND SECOND birthday!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ARD STEPHENS!!!
