Bill Finley has many irons in racing's fire. He is one of America's top journalists, and corresponds for Thoroughbred Daily News and ESPN among others, as well as running his own radio show. He was impressed enough in finding A.P. Indy's best racing son of 2008 at Summerhill, to send us an autographed photograph of A.P. Arrow at the Dubai World Cup
with his Hall of Fame trainer, Todd Pletcher, and his jockey Ramon Dominguez. For what it's worth, A.P. Arrow made the money that evening in the world's richest horserace, going down just a neck to the following year's hero, Well Armed.
The photo illustrates the level of concentration that goes into a US$5million purse. Bill's comments follow :
"I had a wonderful time while visiting the farm and staying at Hartford House. That was one of the best meals I have ever eaten."
"Thanks so much for providing me with a memorable couple of days."
