    - Thursday Oct 19, 2017

    The great Horsegate drama between late-night personalities David Letterman and Conan O’Brien took another twist on Thursday when the “Conan” host advanced the equine mix-up.“When you sent him [the horse] to me, I had no idea he was a ‘rental,'” O’Brien said in a video message to Letterman.“These things happen all the time … when one man sends another man a horse,” he added.Also Read: Conan O'Brien Lands on the 'Wonder Woman' Island of Amazons, Madness Ensues (Video)Dave the Horse actually looked pretty happy — complete with Letterman-style beard — as he chilled out next to the TBS host at his stables.

  • Trainer Anthony A. Stabile puts trust in Black Tie Event
    By Larry Stumes - Thursday Nov 23, 2017

    Anthony A. Stabile has trained thoroughbreds off and on since 1980 in the East and Midwest while also serving as a jockey agent and stable manager. He won with seven of 19 starters in 2009 and trained a graded-stakes performer in Slowhand in 2001, but also had years when he went 4-for-88, 1-for-58 and 0-for-44. This year has been so different. Not only has he won with 14 of 107 starters, but he also moved with 20 horses from Presque Isle Downs in Erie, Pa., to Golden Gate Fields, where he’ll run Black Tie Event in Saturday’s Grade 3, $100,000 Berkeley Handicap.

  • Rick Steves: Siena’s amazing race defines city spirit
    By Rick Steves - Friday Aug 4, 2017

    Siena is divided into 17 neighborhoods, or contrade, 10 of which vie for the coveted Palio banner — and all-important bragging rights.Each competing contrada gets its horse through a lottery and then showers it with love, washing and grooming it in a stable that’s more like a five-star hotel.Each contrada is represented by a mascot (porcupine, unicorn, she-wolf, and so on) and a distinctive flag — colors worn and flown all year long, but omnipresent as the race nears.With the waving flags and pounding drums, it harks back to medieval times, when these rituals boosted morale before battle.The day before the race I joined a crowd in the main square, Il Campo, to see the jockeys — mostly hired hands from out of town — get to know their horses in a practice run called the “charge of the carabinieri.”In Il Campo, dirt is brought in and packed down to create the track’s surface, while mattresses pad the walls of surrounding buildings.Roberto’s friend, Franco, shared his apartment overlooking the race course and we enjoyed the best seats in town.From this vantage point, we watched as the square filled, with pageantry unfolding, flags waving, and excitement building.[...] it was time.At the cathedral, the crowd packed in, and the winning contrada received the beloved banner — champions.[...] the next race.
