Re: 1920: "Emoji Sports"

The title text seems a bit odd. While plenty of breeders will immediately retire a horse to stud after winning a Kentucky Derby (the recent triple crown winner had already sold stud rights, so the owner had no reason to retire the horse early), you still should put Missouri Horse Hole before the Be...

Re: 1678: "Recent Searches"
