Why "Full of Run"?
Full of Run is my Horse Racing Blog. Simple as that. It's inspiration, however, is as deep as deep gets.
You'll notice that the header for Full of Run is a photo of Barbaro turning for home in the 2006 Kentucky Derby. I decided on that image and the title Full of Run because that is how I choose to remember him; nostrils flaring as he leaves all rivals in the wake of his powerful strides as he charges down the long Churchill Downs stretch. Barbaro's lasting contribution to the Sport of Kings may be the world-wide attention his subsequent injury and doomed recovery brought to laminitis, but I remember him like he is in the photo; full of run.
The last quarter mile of the 2006 Derby is forever stored on the hard drive of my mind. I was (and still am) convinced that I was witnessing the horse. This 3 year-old son of Dynaformer was going to do "it." He was going to end a going-on-thirty-year drought of Triple Crown Winners.
