A sign from God?

We haven't returned to Mountaineer since visiting the major leagues of the Breeders' Cup, but we're hoping to slip over the state line on Saturday for the Mountaineer Mile Handicap. It's a $125,000 stakes race, and though I'm not familiar with any of the entries, one of the horses caught my eye: Ask the Lord, an 8-year-old gelding, is being ridden by Jesus ... Jesus Barria, that is.

I'm taking this as a sign that it's time to return to the track.
