“Thoroughbreds…such amazing, majestic, and spiritual beings of beauty. Known to most of the world, for their strength and speed, cheating in the sport of kings. Taking charge on the race track. However, the tragic part of being a thoroughbred is hitting their height, the peak of performance, early out of the gate. I, too, hit the high stakes, at a very early age, I ran hard and I ran fast, wild even, to the point that I thought I was ready to give up. After spending weeks in rehab to get clean and sober, only months later, to be diagnosed with an incurable illness, that almost killed me. Almost, but not quite”.
