Kent Co. Horseman Honored at Chino Chase

By David Turner with photo by Louisa Emerick (first appeared in the May 2018 Equiery) Washington College’s Equestrian Team presented Master of Foxhounds Ed Fry the “Kent County Cup”. The 1836 English silver trophy is annually awarded to a person whose love of horses and contributions to the equine industry on the upper Shore merit recognition by the Chestertown Horsemen’s Club. “Clearly, Fry’s volunteerism and his lifetime dedication to equine sports from his home base, Rose Hill Farm, make him the County’s most prominent horseman,” says the Chestertown Club’s founder Dave Turner. Judges and venues for the Chestertown Horsemen’s award rotate yearly, and on March 18th it was Washington College’s Equestrian Team that honored Fry at their colorful and exciting “Foxchase at Chino Farm” in Kingstown. It was the fourth year for the Team’s fundraising event, which hosted 40 riders this year. Attending the tailgate party afterwards were last year’s Kent County Cup winner, Dr. Henry Sears, Washington College President Kurt Landgraf, and former College President Jay Griswold. The trophy is permanently on display in the Chestertown Town Council’s meeting chamber. More photos from the 2018 Chino Chase can be found at Little Fox...

May 13 - 19 was the 45th Annual National Pike Wagon Train, which goes through Grantsville, MD during the Grantsville National Road Festival. The wagons and people on horseback travel along 42 miles of the National Pike from Grantsville, MD, to Uniontown, PA, in period dress. The National Road Festival celebrates the nation's first federally funded highway (this year was the 200th anniversary of the completion of the Eastern Legacy portion of the road, from Cumberland, MD, to Wheeling, WV), as well as Western Maryland's history and heritage.

Do the flailing whips bother anyone else in American racing?

I'm happy Justify won because I would love to see another Triple Crown. BUT, my boy Good Magic has given him a run for his money both times.

Little bit difficult to go by a whip flailing away in your face... good effort Good Magic!!!! Mike is no dummy.

Thought he was gonna get beat! Exciting finish,!! The Belmont is a helluva race!

Hope he can go the Belmont a longer race!

happy for Mike Smith

Two Down, One to Go for Justify

On a sloppy track at Pimlico this evening, Mike Smith and Justify added the second jewel of the Triple Crown to their hats beating out Bravazo and Good Magic at the wire! Trained by the legendary Hall of Famer Bob Baffert, Justify (owned by WinStar Farm, Head of Plains Partners LLC, Starlight Racing  and China Horse Club) broke well from the gate and moved to an early lead with Good Magic, trained by Chad Brown, falling into stride right beside him. The two quickly turned the 143rd running of the Preakness Stakes into a match race, running side by side, stride by stride, along the far side. As the field turned towards the final stretch, Hall of Fame jockey Smith pushed Justify ahead with Good Magic falling a tad behind. And with the final few furlongs left to go, Justify found himself in company with Bravazo closing fast to finish second at the wire with Tenfold in third. Justify fought hard, and won well. “They ran fast; I’ve never had one run that fast here. It took a lot out of me but I’m just glad … everybody came to see a good horse race. It was a great horse race. Good Magic, I tip my hand to him. He made us really work. He’s a really good horse,” said Baffert. The win...

ELD Mandate Ag Exemption Extended

Breaking News! U.S. Department of Agriculture announced an additional 90-day extension of the agriculture exemption from the Electronic Logging Device (ELD) mandate that affects the transportation of livestock, including horses. To read more about the original mandate, click here for the January 2018 Equiery story: http://equiery.com/holiday-gift-dot-waives-mandate-livestock-haulers-90-days/ Below is the most recent statement from the USDA, posted on March 13, 2018. (USDA – Washington, D.C., March 13, 2018) – U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue today applauded Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao for her announcement of an additional 90-day extension of the agriculture exemption from the Electronic Logging Device (ELD) mandate. Agricultural compliance with the mandate would have been problematic for the agriculture industry because the devices do not accurately account for the agricultural exemptions currently provided in the law. The ELD rule went into effect in December 2017, with the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) granting the agriculture industry an initial exemption that was set to expire on March 18, 2018. With the granting of another extension, the agriculture industry will now have additional time to comply. Secretary Sonny Perdue issued the following statement: “The ELD mandate imposes restrictions upon the agriculture industry that lack flexibility necessary for the unique realities of hauling agriculture commodities. If the agriculture industry had been forced to comply by the March 18 deadline, live agricultural commodities, including plants...
