More Names

“I know you; I know your name.” Ancient Egyptian talisman of power.

Would you ride a horse named Falling Star? One showed up at the Rolex Kentucky 3-Day one year. I believe he got around.

I remember Smashing Touch. She did, and the rider spent months in a cast.

Same thing with Orange Crush. (Same person named these two. Odd, that.)

There was Rush-Me-Not, whom you couldn’t. Rush, that is. And his brother, Catch, whom you couldn’t. They were part of a really interesting family. Two were national performance stars, two were ordinary, and one was an outlaw.

Odd how that works.
