“Yet the Renaissance was also a period of almost incessant warfare, periodic famine, high infant mortality, rapid aging, widespread epidemics, peasant and artisan revolts, intolerance of any form of diversity, grinding poverty, massive illiteracy, forced conversions and migrations, cruelly elaborate public executions of ethnic and religious minorities, and a ferocious witchcraft craze that occurred mostly after the 1590s. For much of the fifteenth century, the European economy suffered a serious depression. The Renaissance began against the background of a series of natural and human disasters and ended in the bloody religious conflicts of the Reformation Era…Those relatively few people who consumed the dazzling higher culture of the period were supported by the drudgery of the masses. For many Europeans who lived through it, what we call the Renaissance must have often seemed like the worst of times, as the influential humanist Erasmus called it shortly before his death in 1536.”

Here’s another colt that looked seriously special early on the Derby trail. He’s a gorgeous grey who looks every bit the $1.2 million spent to buy him. After breaking his maiden in second asking, he pulled away from Master Plan - the future G2 UAE Derby 3rd-place finisher - and was a fast closing second to McCraken in the G3 Sam F Davis. With McCraken out of the way, he exploded in the G2 Tampa Bay Derby. But then the G1 Blue Grass happened and he threw in a total clunker. The Blue Grass has been quite the undoing for several hot horses.
His only start over a wet track was a win in the off-the-truf Pulpit Stakes.
Pedigree Note: His dam Appealing Zophie won the G1 Spinaway at 2 and the G3 Silverbulletday at 3

“I get the point. It’s easy to see our situation. She [Zophie] doesn’t believe this world is going to survive. Lorien, perfect Lorien, with its green forests and red-peaked mountains and elders who always know what’s best for us- this false utopia is going to burn.”

Okay I love Zophis He’s all badass thinkin that he has the last laugh since, even though he is beaten, Koko will be scarred for life and there’s nothing they can do about it. Burning his book is no big deal and they wouldn’t dare to kill him because he has the potential to erase Koko’s bad memories.
Until Brago threatens to hunt him down for the rest of their lives. Then Zophis immediately becomes an obedient sniveling child for the rest of his screen time
okay but tbh my first reaction was like “is that a manip” bc that pic looked EXACTLY like every single manip ever out there of louis with a baby like it’s black and white with a lot of contrast and we have some DAMN GOOD larrie editors out there
