So what if Smarty Jones opted to spend the rest of his days at Three Chimneys Farm, near Midway, Kentucky, thereby forgoing an appearance at this month’s BREEDERS’ CUP WORLD THOROUGHBRED CHAMPIONSHIPS. Pleasantly Perfect, Birdstone, and Perfect Drift, along with dozens of other horses, will be competing at the event, which is racing’s season-ending jackpot—and a huge coup for its host, the relatively young Lone Star Park at Grand Prairie. When all is said and done, some $14 million will be awarded to the speediest Thoroughbreds. Smarty Jones or no, you can’t beat that. See Grand Prairie: Events
