Saturday’s races left us disappointed. Calgary Enforcer ran 12th in his $16,000 claiming race but did not have the good luck (for the ONY VI partnership) of being claimed. Obviously Tuesday made it much more exciting by vying for the lead throughout his contest. seemd to have second place in hand at the 1/16th pole in the home stretch but tired badly, letting 3 horses pass him in the last 20 yards or so. He finished fifth. I don’t know what the plans are for either of them, since I don’t get much info on this group.
Hear the Footsteps left for his vacation in Florida at Pat Hoppel’s farm today. While Cricky’sGoldeneyes has gotten a clean bill of health and will be coming to Belmont from Florida. He has never raced. Pat reports he’s been training well.. but now the real stresses of racing take effect and we’ll have to see how he stands up to them.
Dr. Belgrave was supposed to get to me last Wednesday about Awakino Cat’s condition but did not. I’m following now and will report when I find out.
It’s Truly ahvee will be training lightly at Pat’s farm for another 6 weeks. Hopefully, all this care will help him recover.
I have received a pedigree report from Alan Porter. Had some questions. then we’ll send the recos to Becky Thomas who is a geno-type expert and make a selection of a possible mate for Ahvee’s Destiny. I’m looking forward to that.
Katy’s Office Girl ran in an allowance race that was over her head for her new owner and finished 7th at 34-1.
Hope you had a happy holiday.
