Racing is in our blood
Okay, not my blood per-say. Our family (the Jacobs side) has always had horses back to the old country. Every generation has one of us on horseback. This generation, the horse-crazy one is me.
So where does the racing blood come from? Well, none other than my faithful steed Pressed for Time. During quarantine, with the barns closed to business, he is relaxing at my in-laws with two lovely mares to cavort with. And covort he does!
While Time is a registered Quarter Horse, his racing lineage and height is out of War Admiral, and thus Man-O-War. He also has numerous thoroughbred lines from the very fertile Three Bars. While he never raced a day in his life, he did eventing and stadium jumping which are races over fences.
