With all that’s been going on this Fall, we’ve missed an International Balloon Festival and a horse sale, since Labor Day. The synagogue in Saratoga we attend is having a Centennial Ball on Sunday, so we’re going. It’ll be the last chance to see whichever horses are still based there, since the training area closes down November 1 until next April-May. Of course, we’re going to see our mare, Ahvee’s Destiny at Ellen’s farm.
Awakino Cat didn’t like the soft grass, the hard competition or the 7 furlongs (but that may just be the level of competition). He was well placed, fell back, came on a little but was empty in the stretch for a 6th place finish.
Jess Not Jesse’s race came off the grass, so he scratched.
It’s Truly Ahvee should be ready for a race as Aqueduct opens.
Hear the Footsteps ate nothing yesterday and was running 102 fever. Hopefully, he’ll bounce back quickly. Not much more time for grass races and the wet weather makes even fewer of them.
Numismatic runs in a $7500 claimer tomorrow night. He’s coming out of the 7 spot, so it’ll be a tough race for him. If he doesn’t show something soon, he’ll be going on a permanent vacation.
We’ve just acquired a 4-yr. old filly, pacer Cameron Lucky, and shipped her to Eric’s farm. Hope to meet her this weekend.
Have a lovely weekend!
