Bill Nack is the coolest man alive. After showing him my now-famous Rachel Alexandra picture from the Oaks, he forwarded it to Laura Hillenbrand (the author of Seabiscuit), Charlsie Cantey, and Ray Paulick. He reported that Hillenbrand said of my picture: "Superb."
I thanked him for being my PR to the stars.
In addition to this wonderful nugget of joy today, I had another extreme amount of fortune, but I can't talk about it until next week.
I'm completely mind-boggled here. What an amazing day.
Belmont week is going to rock hard.
