Well, I'm at school. Fun, fun. 5th free right now and I can leave after second lunch but not before. Oh well. At least I can be home by about 1:15:)

Riding tonight! Wahoo! It's been two whole weeks and I'm feeling deprived. I wonder who I'll ride? Probably Sponge Bob. Good 'ol Bob. I'm getting sick of riding Bob 'cause I want to ride, not teach him to trot over jumps. He's a sweetheart though and is "all business." Just does everything to the best of his ability, or rather tries too. Atleast he'll walk over jumps. That's Bob for ya.

O! O! Oh! Hap news! He was retired in June or July, don't remember, but they FINALLY announced where he'll stand! Wooohooo! Here's the article! Or at least I hope this works... Go hap!

Hap will stand at Darby Dan.

Millionaire Hap, a six-time graded stakes winner, has arrived at Darby Dan Farm near Lexington, where he will begin stallion duty next year. The 6-year-old son of Theatrical will stand for $5,000.

"He's relax and has settled in nicely," said John Phillips, managing partner of Darby Dan. "He's a speed-oriented horse, and also displayed speed that carries a distance."

Hap, who was retired this summer because of an ankle injury, scored his richest win in the $558,500 Shadwell Keeneland Turf Mile Stakes (gr. IIT) in 2001, and also captured that year's Dixie Stakes (gr. IIT) at Pimlico and his second consecutive Bernard Baruch Handicap (gr. IIT) at Saratoga, plus the New Hampshire Sweepstakes Handicap (gr. IIIT). Hap also won the 2000 Fourstardave Handicap (gr. IIT) at Saratoga and his three career stakes-placings included a runner-up effort in last year's Arlington Million (gr. IT) and a third-place finish in this year's Woodford Reserve Turf Classic Stakes (gr. IT). Trained by Bill Mott, Hap was retired with 10 wins from 20 starts and $1,329,210 in earnings, all on turf.

Hap's dam, Committed (by Hagley), was a two-time champion in England, Ireland, and France, and the dam of Hap's grade I-winning full sister Pharma. Hap began his racing career for his breeder, Allen Paulson, and ended it racing for Paulson's living trust under the direction of Paulson's son Michael. He will stand as the property of Michael Paulson.

$5000 per live foal! I can afford (or I could afford) to breed a mare to him! I could have had a Hap baby! Miny Hap! I love Hap! He is just so cute! I <3 Hap!

I's still upset about Left Bank's death. He was such a good horse. Poor Bank.
