The Running of the ABC 2016 Spring Crown Cup and Masquerade Ball


Who reigns supreme…

Congratulations ABC 2016 Spring Crown Cup Winner

Coldfells Funny Valentine

ABC racing is not for the faint of heart with 125,000Ls at stake, the competition is intense. The participants need to have the focus and determination to go through the trials and tribulations to breed that phenomenal horse. A key component is finding the right jockey with the right chemistry with the horse… form a bond.  Finding the right combination for that last push to go over the finish line first.

The ABC track conditions were ideal for a spring race – dry – smooth – and no weather. It was a fast track. There was a field of hats in the grandstands, everyone dressed for the sunny warm spring day as anticipation rose. The spectators had their favorites and were ready to cheer them on. When the gates sprang open, no one blinked not wanting to miss anything. The horses lunged forward with the jockeys eyeing every tactical positions to move past their competition.
