Hear the Footsteps ran a great third place on Wednesday after being taken to the outside by Linda’s other entrant, Power Blast, then cut-off by Power Blast early in the stretch, then colliding with Gimme Credit near the finish line. It was a tough race but he kept coming, just 3/4 length behind the winner, a neck behind Gimme Credit and a nose ahead of two others. It was very exciting to see how much heart he had. Plus, where he used to snip at you sometimes before he got snipped himself, now he likes to nuzzle. He’s still a nibbler on carrots and cookies. He’s a nice horse… one who’s finished in the money 11 out of 14 times.
Numismatic was supposed to run tonight but got an abcess in his hoof, so he’ll be scratched from tonight’s race.
Jess Not Jesse breezed yesterday and will race on Wednesday, we hope. Awakino Cat breezed on the turf today. There is a race for him on August 16th in the claiming ranks, where it is hoped he can win.
Hope you have a nice weekend!
