Can anyone explain to me the reasoning behind having a giant chrome horse in front of the new buildings on Marconi and Eastern? El Camino High School has the Eagles, Rio Americano has the Raiders, Jesuit has the Marauders. Why a horse? Why chrome?

Apparently the statue is of a Kentucky Derby winner, requested by county Supervisor Susan Peters, and is supposed to represent the area's horse-breeding history.

Thanks! I still think it's gaudy. And, what horse-breeding history? Correct me if I'm wrong, but this all used to be orchards.

Maybe I'll let Susan Peters know what I think.......
