I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday! I had a fantastic visit with my best friend Jenn who flew out from Chicago, the best Christmas present I could ever imagine. We got to spend Christmas together and a couple of days afterwards.We went to Santa Anita for opening day. The crowd enthusiastically cheered Jerry and Ann Mosses' undefeated Breeders' Cup Classic (gr. I) winner Zenyatta who was paraded in front of the grandstand and into the winner’s circle by jockey Mike Smith after the day's sixth race. It marked her last scheduled public appearance before heading for the breeding shed in Kentucky. It gave me chills.

A friend is someone who sees through you and still enjoys the view.

The best kind of friend is the kind you can sit on a porch swing with, never say a word, then walk away feeling like it was the best conversation that you ever had.

A friend is someone who lets you have total freedom to be yourself.

I'd like to be the sort of friend that you have been to me, I'd like to be the help that you've been always glad to be; I'd like to mean as much to you each minute of the day, as you have meant old friend of mine, to me along the way.

Real friends are those who, when you feel you've made a fool of yourself, don't feel you've done a permanent job
Good friends are like stars.... You don't always see them, but you know they are always there

A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

Oh, I'm so glad you and your friend had such a great time. It must have been thrilling to see her race for the last time before going to Kentucky. Happy New Year!
