It's almost as if the outside air gets colder with each falling leaf. Summer has officially come to an end, and while brief, has given us quite a bit to reflect on.
Waiting and wondering has been a theme throughout these blogs.

We check in on some recent Pensioners, who are living the retired life around the region.
A small Delaware farm literally minutes from the Atlantic Ocean isn’t exactly the place you expect to find foxhunters, much less off-the-track Thoroughbreds. Standardbreds and Chincoteague ponies, maybe–after all, when in Rome. . . but thanks to CANTER Mid Atlantic, former runners Areutrue and Bling Star Dreams are thriving with owners Jim and Pat Griffin at 20-acre Stillwater Farm in Lewes.
Grady. It’s a simple name: masculine, rugged, strong. It sounds like a good name for a boxer. . . a ranch hand. . . a longshoreman. Or a racehorse who made 104 starts and ran until he was 11 years old.
A few days before this magazine went to press, I read an article by associate editor Cindy Deubler and thought about October. The year’s 10th month includes the Maryland Million, the West Virginia Breeders Classics, the Far Hills Races, champion-ship races at Belmont Park, the first day of the Breeders’ Cup and plenty of other big events in Thoroughbred racing. Other than Triple Crown time and August in Saratoga, October might be racing’s most glossy postcard.
Gary Murray will be on the farm in Maryland, trying to get something done about a horse, a piece of equipment, a fencepost, anything and he’ll see Tom Voss.“I see him every day at home on the farm, in a tractor shed grumbling about something, trying to fix something that’s broken 15 times,” said Murray, Voss’ son-in-law, on a Tuesday morning at Saratoga. “I might try to do the same things he did, but I don’t have the same skills as Tom.”
“Editorial excellence is not a goal to be sought and one day acquired and then retired to the trophy case. It is instead an ambition which must be pursued each day, never ending, never totally achieved. That striving, that ambition is an essential part of our newspapers, a cornerstone of what we have been, what we are, and what we will be.”

Mid-Atlantic connections are popping up everywhere, from Arlington to Saratoga. Here are a few that our own Mid-Atlantic encyclopedia and Associate Editor Cindy Deubler caught over Labor Day.
Which Mid-Atlantic-bred horses have won the middle jewel of the Triple Crown? Cindy Deubler has the list:
We know you were wondering which Midlantic-bred horses have won the Kentucky Derby. Here's the list:
Jay Trump’s sweep of Maryland’s three major timber races, the first time in 17 years, culminated with a second consecutive Maryland Hunt Cup victory.
The Thoroughbred world suffered a great loss with the death of Richard Small this past weekend. Read Vinnie Perrone's award-winning story from the February 2009 Mid-Atlantic Thoroughbred of this Maryland icon. He captured the man like no one else ever could:
This weekend the Elkridge-Harford Point-to-Point runs at the Voss family's Atlanta Hall in Monkton, Maryland. The locals call them The Voss Races. Mostly due to one man's overwhelming influence on the event, Tom Voss. This past January, the industry lost this great horseman and friend. He will be notably missed by many who attend tomorrow's event. We dug into our archives for Joe Clancy's August 2002 story.
