For the 8th time in 15 starts, Hear the Footsteps finished 3rd. For a moment, he took the lead in the stretch but was unable to withstand two of his regular rivals, Ampersan who won by a head over Gimme Credit who finished in front of us by only a head but for the 4th time. I really wanted a Winner’s Circle photo because our son Jonathan was here for the race (and everyone ALWAYS wants a photo anyway). No such luck.
Numismatic, our trotter, runs tonight at Saratoga Harness in the 8th race race from the #2 slot with a new driver, Jay Randall. He’s 15-1 on the morning line but hopefully will do better than his odds indicate.
Once again, Awakino Cat’s race did not get used for Monday. You just can’t believe anything they tell you. They said it would have gone but only 5 participants entered.
So, now we wait for the end of the Meet to see if any races are scheduled for Awakino (or even jess Not Jesse).
Travers tomorrow. Have a great weekend!
