Nothing like a little dose of good vibes to get your week started off right. If you doubt it, just try not having a “Good News Monday.” – Pass along the positive, and watch the flow of energy pass along from one-to-another. Be kinder, be happier, and enjoy the ride!


Great news!

Megan Fadlovich, who has ridden 500+ winners but sidelined since an accident in February that claimed the life of her boyfriend Coty Davidson, landed her first win as a trainer when Zangarva ($17) wearing down Waterloo Sunset in Race #4. There was barely a dry eye in the house. ( From the Facebook page of announcer Peter Berry). – If you get a chance, give it a listen. It will bring a tear to your eye and a lump in your throat.

I remember every time she rode at Belterra Park. Young, and energetic to say the least, and gave it everything she had when in the saddle. Tough on the turf, and if she rode longer she would have been the “Queen of the Green.” – That’s the fun part when you see riders giving their heart and soul to the sport they love. – I called down to the jocks room my first year and asked how her last name was pronounced. She told me I was doing just fine, but just call it correct when she went to the winner’s circle.

And just when the big night couldn’t get any better. – Megan made it a double when Rocky Diplomat, trained to two second-place finishes here by Coty late last year, sprang an $18.60 upset in the sixth. What a night to remember.

Best of luck, Megan! – I think you have a special angel on your shoulder. Can’t wait to see your name in the program!

The racing game can be topsy-turvy at best. – Good one day, and trouble the next. The care of the Thoroughbred comes first. They eat first. They get better care than most have time to take care of themselves. That’s horse racing. – Megan’s story is one of courage and selfless devotion to the sport she loves. – I can’t wait to see her make her way to the paddock to saddle her runners. “They say you never really know how strong you are until you’re forced to find out,” according to the Paulick Report. – Best of luck, my friend. We’re looking forward to what the future holds for you.
