Earlier, your humble organ reported on fabled provincial Liberal backroom boy Patrick Kinsella's recent elevation to the esquestrian classes. And now, thanks to an astute reader, we're pleased to let you know about the rapid expansion of his race horse stable. Yesterday, Mr. Kinsella (who runs a communications firm) and Glen Todd, purchased three throughbreds for $12,000, $19,000 and $12,500. And it seems his wife has also become involved with the sport of kings. Back in August, The Province's Tom Wolski reported a number of prominent women involved with charitable causes, including Brenda Kinsella, had "pooled together $16,000 US to buy a racehorse. Their ambition was not geared toward making money for themselves but to raise funds for research and help create a better awareness of breast cancer, under the banner the Pink Ribbon Stable."
