Sometimes It’s Good to Be a Horse

"Screw all you poor people, I'm rich bitch!"

Times are hard around the country as the economic downturn continues to pummel the average citizens. Fortunately, times aren’t hard for everyone. Take for instance Mike Moreno of Southern Equine Stables who thought nothing about spending a record setting $14 million dollars on a broodmare at auction. Even more impressive, the bidding lasted all of 26 seconds! Take that everyone who got their home foreclosed upon!

The mare in question, Better Than Honour, is the only mare in racing history to birth two Belmont Stakes winners, Jazil who won in 2006 and then Rags to Riches who won it the following year. Not too bad I suppose, but worth $14 million? That’s one very expensive vagina. The answer however, was obvious to Moreno, who already owned 70 percent of the mare, “She’s the best mare in the world. … She’s a Picasso,” Moreno said. “You can’t sell a mare like this.”
