Happily, Linda reconsidered entering It’s Truly Ahvee when we spoke on Sunday afternoon. We scratched from the $16K claimer and he will run in NY at Aqueduct in mid-March in a Starter Allowance, where he can’t get claimed!
Inchscape is the name of our newest acquisition. He’s a 3-yr. old out of Indian Charlie and a Seeking the Gold mare. He got left at the gate today in the first race of his career but came on at the end to finish third. Linda was happy to win a three-way shake (lottery) to determine which of the three trainers who put in claims would get him. We’ll see if he will make us happy in the future.
Rhoda asked whether we could put him on the Kentucky Derby trail. We all had a good chuckle about that but it’s fun to dream!
Cameron Lucky, our harness pacer, will be entered in the feature at Saratoga Harness’s Opening Day on Sunday. She has been looking good in her qualifying races.
We expect to run our new acquisitions in March at Aqueduct. Footsie (Hear the Footsteps) is coming North to join in the fray.
