#1 here yet again. Yesterday, I spent some time visiting stables at the Ban'Ei racetrack. I had heard rumours that one of the leading trainers, Mr. T, had some much loved pugs. A trainer friend, Ms. A, kindly took me round to meet not the pugs, but two famous stallions who are stabled with Mr. T. We did the stallion thing and then I asked him about the woofies. Well...
First, I got to meet Ran, the little girl:
Then Mrs. T brought out Ken, the boy. He is slightly younger:
You can see how much they love their little pugs! Mr. T looked all bashful when he said that Ran sleeps with him!
Of course, I did also get to meet two of the big boys. This is 7-year old Ore no Kokoro. He won the biggest race of the year in March!
And this is Sengoku Ace. He is only 5 years old, but already very strong!
