Racing in Japan
I love that you are following your passion in other countries. Fantastic. Dave is working in Orange County and I'm in SF but I come down. Let's try to get together again. Let's try a different track. Sounds like the Japanese are smart about horse racing and breeding.

Racing
Yes, it's fun to see how different places handle racing. What started as a pretty simple contest of "My horse is faster than yours," has turned into something much bigger.

Glad you are back in Japan
You always find things other people don't. Thanks for a new perspective.

Happy to have you along
One of the advantages to going to the out-of-the-way places is that they are rarely crowded.

Luggage drama
So glad that bag story ended well. It's so easily done when you are jet lagged and running on empty. Happy travels in Japan!

drama
I'm glad I remembered when I did as well. I would have hated to get all the way to the hotel and find my mistake.

Japan-tired-no baggage-oh my!
Dear Karen, I'm excited to "travel" with you on this journey! My closest friend here is from Tokorozawa in Saitama, and some day I'll go there. I anticipate hearing your take on Japan wherever your travels take you!

Travel on
I'm happy to have you along for the ride.

LAX
Gate assignments are strategic planning to see how badly you want to get to your location. Holy crap batman... no luggage. My heart was pounding as you hurried back. So glad things turned out well. A hot shower and a cold beer is definitely the way to go!

LAX
Maybe the airport is just trying to make sure I get a bit of exercise in before the long plane ride...or maybe they just get a giggle out of watching me run.

From last to first
Great video Karen. You obviously have a great horse...was 5/2 in that race so expected to run well. Got her revenge on Tiz Toffee who beat her earlier in the year but I gotta say she appeared caught tight on the rails. I'll keep an eye on Sauce for Side. Must be great to be one of the owners!

Last to first
When Sauce on Side crossed that finish line in the video, a great roar went up in the stands, it was such a great ride. I have a tiny share of another horse, Noble Goddess, who has yet to run. The trainer is saying he will probably put her in a race later this month. Noble Goddess was sired by Noble Mission, a British horse, owned in part by Prince Khalid Bin Abdullah. (Though I kinda doubt the prince will be rubbing shoulders with me any time soon.

I love that you have a fractional or any share in a racehorse Karen. What a bonansa that "your" horse is also a potential winner. I also love the concept of a horse that is coming last and accelerates smiling while flying past the others. Makes for a heart dropping race. We have a mare in Oz called Winx who unbeaten has just won her last 32 races in a row...a World Record I believe. She always sits back in the field then...wooosh...acceleration like you have never seen. May your Sauce on Side continue to have that wooosh factor and sometimes bring home the bacon...smiling all the way!.

come from behind
You're right - Winx is a great horse, and she's still racing! There is a great YouTube video of Sauce on Side running at Del Mar December 1, 2018. where she came from 10 lengths off the lead to finish first. [url=https://youtu.be/d2TR0JsO9AU/]DelMarSauceonSide[/url]

Interesting!
Interesting read. Wish we had horses nearby to write about them so keenly.

Thanks for your kind words. India has a long and rich history of horse racing, so I'm sure you are in good company.

Congratulations to the 'fractional owner'
Every one has a dream or two, and every one cherishes when the 'dream comes true'. Sauce on side made your dream come true, although she is fractionally yours. Enjoy!

Thanks!
Thanks for the kind words. I think fractional ownership is such a good idea. It gives people like me who just really like horse racing a way to be part of it with very little risk - and very little upside; while I do get to share in any purses, you can imagine that after expenses my one fifth of one percent doesn't add up to much. But I still cheer just as loud, and I get the same glass of champagne i the Winner's Lounge as the people with a lot bugger stake.

Bravo Karen
Having been to the races with you we really enjoyed reading this blog. I'm glad your horse is doing so well. I think you may need to do more race traveling.

Race travelling...
Thanks MJ. It looks like the G3 Epsom Cup is going to be run in Tokyo while I'm there this summer, I might need to check it out.
