I love horse racing. It started way back when I was in the military and was able to visit three well-known California tracks: Hollywood Park and Santa Anita Park in the Los Angeles area and Del Mar down toward San Diego.
I see where William “Doc” Reed is retiring Perfect Drift (9/24, Sports, “Heading to green pastures”). Just being nominated for the Kentucky Derby is a great honor because these 3-year-olds have to be the fastest of the fastest. When Drift came in third, it was fantastic.
Doc said Drift is going into a different occupation but it can’t be standing at stud. Geldings don’t have any “whichamacallits.”
