That left Hear the Footsteps as our standard bearer today at Saratoga Race Course. In 9 starts, he had never been out of the money. Today, he ran from the #1 post, statistically a terrible post for racing on the inner turf course. Hear the Footsteps gave further credence to that statistic by finishing off the board for the first time, in fourth place. To use the hanidcappers parlance, he probably “bounced” (regressed) off his last effort where he ran his best speed rating. Cornelio Velasquez maintained his “ofer” streak with our stable.
They can’t all be like Ahvee’s Destiny!
Tomorrow, we get a tour and history lesson about Saratoga Race Curse by track announcer, Tom Durkin. It should be fun. We’ll kid him about calling Hear the Footsteps by his father’s name (Read the Footnotes).
Monday, there’s a party to celebrate Linda Rice’s 1000th win.
