This has been going on for three or four years now.

In addition to the fact that Maker is moving these horses up (that is an
observation, not an accusation) they seem to run extremely well on many
different turf courses, including when shipping.

It is hard to imagine (without eliminating the possibility of) a gray area PED
which is more effective on turf than on other surfaces.

My theory (expressed previously) is that Maker employs an outstanding
blacksmith or some sort of innovative shoeing method/technology which helps
maximize his runners' (and if I am not mistaken they are predominantly
colts/geldings) performance on grass surfaces. Maybe even those runners who do
not have a turf pedigree or turf hoof.

Golf Note: Speaking of "innovative technology", I went to the driving range
Sunday and swung a golf club in anger for the first time since 2015 and must
report that it might be time for the graphite shafts. My 9-iron felt as heavy
as a tree trunk.

First step towards a heroic return in the 2021 (Senior?) (Spectator Free) TG
Open sponsored by Runhappy.
