In a day of controversy, the Twin Spires grounds were circled by hundreds of people protesting the death of Breona Taylor, a young woman whose death has become the focus of the Black Lives Matter movement.

Mans best friend
Sooo... they put Grey's Anatomy on Netflix...Anyone else binge-watching it? Here's "Thatcher" (45313076). He doesn't have a history of running out on his wife (because he's a dog), he doesn't need a liver transplant (just a neuter, and that's included in his adoption fee, along with shots, and microchip), he just needs a home! And he's definitely better behaved than Meredith's dog Doc...
