Bill Gross Strangely Silent On Horse Race

Friday afternoon, Bill Gross put up a show of support for those taking the CFA exam on Saturday, as someone who's been there. Gross tweeted:

And yet, as of Monday at 12:45PST, more than 44 hours after California Chrome became the latest horse not to win the Triple Crown, he'd tweeted nary a statement about the Belmont Stakes or referred to its past winner, Secretariat, the American Thoroughbred with whom Gross deeply identifies.

Nothing about how the Derby and Preakness winner "put on a good show, but nobody BUT NOBODY puts Secretariat in a corner." Nothing about how he would've applauded the first Triple Crown winner since 1972 (the flukes of 1977 and 1978 aren't mentioned around the Newport Beach office) but "the horse gods want what the horse gods want." Hopefully, in due time, there will be a report of Gross gathering his employees on the trading floor to watch footage painstakingly pieced together by his secretary, of Secretariat's training sessions and victories, spliced together with early biographical details about "this great beast," narrated by Gross. Until then, we wait.

Bill Gross's Mustache Is Never Coming Back

Has there ever been a person in your life you didn't realize how much meant to you 'til they were gone? Who you would have treated better if you'd known your final day with was your last? Who you would have begged to stay? Who you assumed would be back eventually but as the weeks, months, and years crept on forced you to come to the hard realization that the next and only time you'd see them would be in your dreams, because they were never coming back? Whose permanent absence, once finally accepted it, hit you like a ton of bricks? Then you know how people involved with Bill Gross's Mustache feel today. Once a daily presence on the PIMCO manager's face, the BGM went away for a while but it was assumed not for good because how could that be? Why would that be? It felt impossible. Then this happened: Bloomberg's Tom Keene: When does the mustache come back? Gross: Never. My wife has finally adjusted, so it's not coming back. If you never got to say a proper good-bye, if you would have done things differently, if you feel like the wind's been knocked out of you, if you can't bear the thought of being alone tonight, join us as we light a candle in memoriam.
