Cameron Lucky. Yesterday I said it would be a miracle if she won. On paper, she did not seem to be in the same league as most of her competition. Yet, Eric told me she’d be competitive. She ran last most of the race and finished next to last. Because she ran a fast last quarter mile and had not run for 28 days, Eric felt this was a good performance and she’d do better next time. Frankly, I wish he would have said that the horse was in over her head and that this would be a good tightening race for her before the race. Now, he says she can qualify for a lower classification race. I guess we’ll see how she does there.
The “free” horse, No Show Bates, runs on Wednesday night. Even though he’s in post #7 in race #11, he’s 4-1 on the Morning Line. We’ll see what can happen here. We know he won his last race!
Hear the Footsteps in entered on the grass at Aqueduct on Friday. Cornelio will ride. Hopefully, the course will dry out by Friday and he’ll go the mile distance. Go Footsie!
Best to all,
