Two odd little stories from today. One was from lunch; the waitress was the granddaughter of my 7th grade geography teacher... in Midland. We're in Lexington, KY, a good 500 miles away, but the young lady is going to UK after growing up in Lansing.
Another interesting story was Eileen asking me to look into a horse that a friend's family owns; this being horsey country, it's not that odd to be a person or two removed from the racing industry. The horse in question was a filly named Dr. Zic who was supposed to be running at Keeneland (Lexington's race track) during their fall meet.
I find that she's riding in the 8th race on the 14th, ridden by a C H Borel.... is that the Calvin Borel of Triple Crown fame? It seems so, since H is his middle initial and it's unlikely that two CH Borels are floating around horse racing.
One step away from my old Geography teacher (who passed on in the 90s as it turns out) and four steps away from Bo-Rail. Interesting
