Sixty miles west of London in the “Valley of the Racehorse,” some human beings in recent years have dug out the word “extraordinary” and put it to use. Like all other humans, they can’t sort out what to make of the wretched events since Nov. 13, 2016, which wreaked a mystery almost as old as dirt.
"Two Racehorses, Both Male, ‘Fell in Love’ and Grew Inseparable. Until Tragedy Did it For Them." is from the December 25, 2017 Sports section of The Washington Post. It was written by Chuck Culpepper and narrated by Sam Scholl.
