The Breeders’ Cup World Championships are upon us and with so many champions in one place, it will require more than just talent to put a nose in front on race day. Here is a sample of fortune cookies recently found on barn floors, wedged in horseshoes, and under the saddlecloths of some of our favorite racehorses.

Fort Larned: The past is your friend, and also your nemesis.

Palace Malice: Take the road less chosen.

Mucho Macho Man: Keep in close touch with what your competition is doing.

Wise Dan: Your past success will be overshadowed by your future success.

Verrazano: The secret of getting ahead is getting started.

Goldencents: The origin of victory is to desire it.

Game On Dude: Good things are being said about you.

Will Take Charge: Let there be magic in your start and firmness in your stretch run.

Paynter: The hard times will begin to fade, joy will take their place.

Authenticity: Keep your plans secret for now.

Princess of Sylmar: Be direct, usually one can accomplish more that way.

Beholder: Good luck is the result of good planning.

Point of Entry: All your hard work will soon pay off.

Groupie Doll: Your many hidden talents will become obvious to those around you.

Jen Ferguson

Jen Ferguson is an artist whose interest in depicting racehorses and track life goes back to early childhood, when she was obsessed with drawing horses and jockeys out of Blood-Horse magazines she got from her uncle, who owned and raced Thoroughbreds. In fact, her first childhood drawings were of racehorses.

In 2009, she published a book of drawings and stories based on expeditions to Aqueduct titled “Railbirds: My Life at the Track.” Jen spent last August working on drawings at Saratoga Race Course and plans to return for the 2013 meet. She currently works in Brooklyn, N.Y., where she draws regularly at Aqueduct and Belmont Park. If you see her sketching at the track, say hello!

More of Jen’s work plus her racetrack sketchbook in progress can be seen at jenferguson.com
