Thoroughbred racing intersects often with other sports from around the world. Football players, soccer stars, college basketball coaches, and baseball managers dabble in the best game played outdoors.

Decorated Olympic skier Bode Miller did quite a bit more than dabble in July when he purchased a 40-stall barn at the Fair Hill Training Center in Maryland. The purchase is the latest step in Miller's plans for life after skiing.

Joe Clancy's July 22 story "Bode Miller buys Fair Hill barn" outlined some of those plans and the details of the purchase.

Miller bought Perfect Sky 1, a 40-stall barn, from owner/breeder Earle Mack. Originally built by trainer Jim McGreevey, the barn includes 24 stalls in its main building, a 16-stall annex and the usual complement of turnout paddocks. The barn is across the training center's main road from barns owned by trainers Graham Motion and Mike Trombetta. For now, the barn is rented to tenants though Miller has eight horses in training with Tres Abbott at Fair Hill.

"The move helps take Miller another step in his goal of creating a Thoroughbred training operation.

" 'It's a process you have to be patient with,' he said last fall when asked about becoming a trainer. 'I will be a trainer in the next year or two. I'm not that interested in getting bit and kicked and punched by horses so I try to have someone else do that part of it.' "
