Grand Slam dies

By Eliza

Racing reports everywhere are on top of the news that Grand Slam, the great stallion, has died. You can go to those other sources--good one from the Blood-Horse--for why this is important. But I just want everyone to remember the moment in the movie Dreamer (an excellent choice for those who want to watch something about the love between a girl and a horse that is not all about riding--she literally rides one time) when the little horsey Carhartt-wearing girl played by Dakota Fanning meets Grand Slam. She's thrilled, astonished, a true fan of the greatest game. and it's one the movie's finest moments.

  1. I remember that scene of the movie and that beautiful barn. Sigh.
