Tom and "The General"

Click photo to view a video David made for Time.com

A few weeks ago my friend David and I spent a few hours with Tom McCarthy. McCarthy's horse General Quarters won the Bluegrass Stakes at Keeneland Racecourse Saturday, April 11, 2009. Now he will run for the roses on May 2, 2009 in the Kentucky derby. Both horse and trainer/owner were remarkable to be around and watch how they work. The magnificent steel gray and lightning fast colt will show his mettle this week and I will be pulling for him.
