On the news this morning, a man described the actions of his organization as being ‘driven by the hoofprints of history’. Setting aside the politics entirely, you’ve got to wonder about the hoofprints of history. Somewhere, does Man O’ War’s hoofprint still endure, trapped in slow-standing mud and dried for all eternity? What about Kelso? Seabiscuit? Brown Beauty, who Paul Revere rode on his famous ride? Diablo, who carried the Cisco Kid, or Trigger, Roy Roger’s beloved Palomino? Do we have these hoofprints, somewhere, to commemorate these great horses and the role they’ve played?
Perhaps not…but we have the next best thing.
