Clue/Question:  After getting injured, the horse was now in . . .

Answer:  STABLE CONDITION

(A nice long 15 letter answer!  All of today’s clue words were old friends, but they were all jumbled very well.  The answer letter layout was fantastic!  I’m thinking Jeff is not a big fan of horses.  But, he seems to like . . . cowboys.  Hmm!  I bet he’s a closet Village Peoples fan.   He was rooting for Mucho Macho Man.  Congrats to Fort Larned.  Very impressive win.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  CHIPPER

(Cool.  People who don’t know much about golf may have struggled with this one.  Now, all we need is an explanation from Jeff as to who these two characters are.  All the clue words were tried and true, although there were some interesting jumblings.  And, I enjoyed the answer letter layout.  Nice way to start the week, guys.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
