Just because a horse can run, or train, does not mean that it can race. It might have the ability to run just as fast as everyone else - or faster - but it can't race, or won't race. There are plenty of horses working at Penn National or Finger Lakes, everyday, putting in workouts that are just as fast as the horses at Belmont. But they can't race; that's why they're at Finger Lakes.
Joe Layden, The Ghost Horse: A True Story of Love, Death, and Redemption

The morning opens, a mist of innocence appears across the countryside that tells each one of us the day is new. That feeling of hope, love and the humble awareness of our duty becomes clear if even for a moment. It is that experience of inspiration that follows us into a small town woken by a cool frost on this Sunday morning and the laughter of children playing.
Kris Courtney, Norma Jean's Sun
