Bridgetown is a super sprinter and will be Cat’s main obstacle to winning today. The turf is soft from all the recent rain, but it’s a beautiful day. I’d wanted Alan Garcia to ride him, since he’s won multiple races on him before but who can be disappointed that Ramon Dominguez will be aboard. It’s the 5 1/2 furlong Troy Stakes that Awakino has won the last 2 years, hopefully leading to a Graded Stakes race at 7 furlongs in Canada at Woodbine on August 28th… but, as usual, lots remains to be seen.
Footsie and Katy will be entered for races on Saturday today. Will know later whether they got in. Ahvee’s Destiny is pointing to The Jazzy Stakes on August 29th.
I’m too nervous to write a lot now. It’s the ninth race at 5:30. Lots of friends here to cheer on Awakino Cat. It’s probably too much to ask that they all get a Winner’s Circle photo but we can hope!
