One comment on “Emotional Rescue?”

  1. I read in the short heads that Larry Wainstein had his first graded win in 35 years. Larry Wainstein is a testament to perseverance. I am not sure if having a first graded race win in 35 years is an acievement or the complete antithesis. Statistically and to his credit, Larry Wainstein and possibly no more than 50 others have been owners for a consecutive period of 35 years. This an achievement but remains thought provoking about why the average joe would remain in horse racing for so long suffer annual loss after loss.
