Racehorse extrodinaire~~Alydar~~

~~

 What follows is a book review about a racehorse who had sex so often~~it~~quite literally~~killed him~~my surmise is that he derived little to zero pleasure from sex.~~

~~

I am not competent to say if or no animals derive pleasure from sex–or if it’s all instinct with them but I can say that I know for certain that~~

~~

As any girl can readily attest~~sex is like anything else in life~~when it becomes your job~~it ceases to have any kick to it~~

Sex it up~~Sex ’till you can’t stand up~~Sex ’till you die~~

~~

Book Review of Wild Ride~~@8.5.2013~~

~

Alydar was one of the premier race horses and stud horses of our lifetimes.~~

~~

A magnificent racing thrill, in the breeding shed after his career, he ginned out more Grouped winners than anyone of recent memory~~save Seattle Slew.~~

~~

His life was tragic as he became a shattered chess piece in a sordid game of bait and switch and physical abuse as a stallion.~~

~~

Gorgeous Calumet Stables~~beloved to all in the business had fallen into the most disreputable of hands~~men desperate to both steal money and to keep one step ahead of a fast approaching racing authority.~~

~~

In her wonderful book, Wild Ride, Ann Auerbach captures both the beauty and savagery of the highest level of the thoroughbred racing business~an enterprise very little known to outsiders not born to it.~~

~~

Auerbach likewise knows very well the breeding side of the business–a still more terrifying, rarefied and ruthless enterprise than is the racing sport itself.~~

~~

It can be said with alacrity~but in no sense jocularly~that the stallion Alydar~~died from too much sex.~~

~~

That may sound to many readers as the ideal way to leave this orb but sex is like anything else~~

~~

If you have to do it all the time~~it’s work~~and nobody likes to work~~not man~~not beast~~
