my family's history is tucked in Illinois' countryside
horses run in our blood
galloping through generation to generation
my great-grandpa raised Thoroughbreds
a tradition passed on to his son
and his son's son

no wonder is my fondness for these creatures
naturally beating
here is the next generation of race horses
the farm's yearling
born of Cactus Ridge and Irguns Star:

are there traditions coursing unavoidably through your veins too?
