Eric couldn’t believe he was such a bad trainer based on Numismatic’s race record. So, he had the Vet check out the horse… and Numismatic had a heart murmur. An ultra-sound revealed damage to the heart valve. So, Numismatic will become a buggy horse in Vermont. Oh well!
But, that’s not all… as we say in the direct marketing business. It’s Truly Ahvee, running a mile for the first time, came in a very game second place while bleeding internally right through Lasix. His Beyer speed rating was his best ever, even with the bleeding. Without the bleeding, he might have won the race by 5 and had a really special Beyer rating. We’re investigating some new therapies for this troubled but beautiful horse with a lot of heart.
After he race yesterday, we had dinner at Don Peppe’s family style restaurant with Barbara and all the Adsits. It was very nice and lots of fun. Rhoda wanted to know what types of wine they had available. The waiter said, “red or white.” Color is your only choice!
Cameron Lucky runs again tomorrow at Saratoga Harness from the 6 slot. She’s 9-2 on the morning line. It’s the 8th race with post time around 3PM.
