Lava Man

Here's a clip of Lava Man defending his crown in the Santa Anita Handicap this past Saturday. I love this horse.

For everyone that doesn't already know him, he's the Seabiscuit of our generation: he was claimed for $50,000 in 2004 with a pretty undistinguished record, handled with care, and went on the become the 3rd all-time earner in California racing history ($4.6 million so far). His record on the road is quite spotty, but in California he's pretty much unbeatable. He's 6 now, with no signs of wear.
