Uphold was vanned to Indiana Grand from Margaux Farm once Governor Holcomb’s Back on Track allowed out of state horses to enter the State. He is in Jordan Blair’s barn and is settling in nicely. Looking forward to his 5 yr old campaign.
See pictures below taken 10 days before he shipped to IG.

Uphold- Strike a Pose
I can’t believe Defining Hope and On The Point’s fillies are already 4 months old! Thanks to COVID, many a horse owner was in the same boat, separated from the horses that they love. Margaux Farm did a great job updating us on the horse’s progress and growth. Though, it sure was great to finally seem them in person- Nothing like it in the world!
Defining Hope’s Cross Traffic filly is very athletic looking while On The Point’s Wicked Strong filly looks like a two turn filly all day long.
The yearling filly, Everything’s Rosy, out of Blueskiesnrainbows, just went through a huge growth spurt this last month. She looks like a 2 yr old for sure. Let’s just get all of that growing out of the way early I say!
Defining Hope is in foal to Runhappy. On the Point will take this year off. Both mares are doing well.
See pictures of the horses below.

Today seemed as fitting as ever to add a few thoughts on Freedom.
We’ve always heard the saying, With Freedom comes Responsibility. Starting today, let us hold ourselves accountable for our actions and hold ourselves accountable to each other. I believe it is as simple as that. If we hold ourselves accountable to ourselves and to each other, then how can we justify ever hurting each other?
Sure, our country has some issues to work through, but at the end of the day, we are Americans and I still believe that we live in the greatest country in the world. The word American doesn’t know any division so why make it so? To be an American implies that we are all apart of a melting pot and because of our history, we are unique, one of a kind and always will be.
Today, I give thanks for being an American and for being able to follow my passion to wherever it’s supposed to lead me. I give thanks to God, for my family, for my friends, and for my great team of advisors.
When you lay your head down on your pillow tonight after all of the fireworks cease, simply ask yourself and try to imagine what life would be like without our freedom and this great country of ours.
God Bless and Happy Fourth of July!
