Jezebels half brother is going to Rolex. Which I think is pretty cool. His name is Nonsensical. His rider/owner  Emilee Libby and though I wont be able to watch much of Rolex this year (more on that another time), I’ll be secretly rooting for him. It has to be as sorta secret rooting because my […]
