It would be a beautiful thing if this guy wins the Kentucky Derby with his only horse, at the age of 75, after serving kids for decades as a teacher and school principal.

I am so sorry to hear that General Quarters has been sidelined. I just love him and wanted him to win the Derby and Preakness. I look forward to seeing him return in the Clark. I am sure that he will win!!!

Mints, carrots and hugs to the General.
