My name is Liz I have recently moved back to Louisville,Ky.I moved back home after living in Charlotte NC for five years. (So I am very familiar with horse racing.!) I live here now with my dog BJ, my cat Graymont and hubby Joe. I work in the medical field.
I don't have any "hands on" horse experience but visited Churchill Downs, Keeneland and Ellis Park quite a bit. I never was much of a bettor just enjoyed going to the tracks to watch the beautiful horses. I never really studied all the aspects of the horses until Barbaro. I have learned so much from this journey.
I have donated both to the Barbaro fund and the Laminitis research fund.I have also signed petitions to end horse slaughter. Hope to do more in the future!
I came upon this site shortly after the Preakness last year (thank you!) and visit TWR and discussion boards on a regular basis just haven't posted too much but I read ALOT! I have been talking with a few FOB's lately and hope to meet them soon!
