Nice to see both Ah Day and Spectacular Malibu get their due respect. Who would have thought both of these horses would become so successful and I feel somewhat lucky to have seen Ah Day win way back as a two year old vs. Haldy (RIP) and see the progress Spectacular Malibu made from being broken to being a stakes winning horse. It ain't all bad here in Maryland afterall.
