We claimed him yesterday!
In any case, he should run in Saratoga and, hopefully…. WIN!
By Wednesday, we’ll know if Ahvee’s Destiny is still in foal. If so, she will be eligible for Prospective Foal insurance and we’ll cover her to protect our investment in her “No Guarantee” season to the sire, Honor Code. Usually, the breeding is done with a requirement that the foal “Stands and Nurses” after being born. We have no such guarantee. So, that’s what the insurance will provide. In fact, it will cover the foal for 30 days from birth.
FlatteryWillGetYou was very sweet yesterday and ate many cookies. However, her knee has been acting up. I asked her if she was comfortable. Flattery said, “I make a living!” (An appropriate joke for Father’s Day, since my dad always used that answer!)
We hope she will feel better soon or she may have to skip the Victory Ride Stakes on July 9th. More to come!
