Reminder: Competition is a Good Thing

Daaher & Midnight Lute in the Cigar Mile (Sarah K. Andrew)

A few days after the Cigar Mile I remembered seeing the headline “Midnite Lute scares away most Cigar Mile Nominees” prior to the race.

It’s too bad they didn’t show up, there were 2 1/2 lengths in between Daaher and Midnight Lute that any number of horses could have fit in. I’d like to think that if I were an owner (something I’d really like to be someday), that I wouldn’t shy away from competition… look at well at worked out for Daaher’s connections.
