As luck would have it the day we picked to honor another of our Del Mar stars, Full Moon Madness, coincides with the full moon! And like "Moonie", tonight's moon is extrodinary as Mars will be so near to earth as to almost appear to be a second moon. What better day to celebrate our fabulous retiree who ran third in the Gr. 2 Pat O'Brien Breeders Cup Handicap at Del Mar in 2003, on his way to earning more than a million dollars over a nine-year, seventy-two race career.
But Moonie is yet another horse who arrived at Tranquility Farm with nothing from that great big bag of money that he won. And so tonight I'll be wishing on that star for Moonie and asking his friends and fans to HELP KEEP MOONIE HAPPY!
