    Default ESPN documentary tonight at 7PM. ESPN's E:60. Ernie Paragallo filly who raced.

    Notinrwildestdremz will be featured tonight in a feature on ESPN's E:60 show at 7pm EST tonight. She was a filly rescued by Sean and Angelika Kerr, who took her and a couple other Paragallo horses in. Dremz was brought back to great condition, and was looking to run, and this is her story.

    That may be an anticlimactic tale, seeing as she ran once and finished 9th out of 9.

    I knew the end - know the principals. But when done by Bill Nack, must have some redeeming qualities.

    I'm watching it now. Nice ESPN story. They were just happy that she finished healthy and that she came back from a horrible condition to be strong enough to run in a race. Nope, not a fast one (lol), but not all of them are. She looks tiny. They'd tried to race her once before and she flipped over in the gate and was scratched. In that race the owners commented that she was smaller than the pony horse leading her out to the track.

    Pony horses aren't actually ponies and are often larger than the horses they pony. As far as this filly goes, I am just glad the fiasco is over.
