To make a long story short, my I-Pad made it difficult to communicate from the road. So, eveything was done in shorthand.
Sorry about that.
Because of heavy rain in Saratoga, it was decided to send both Ahvee’s Destiny and Awakino Cat to Parx in Philadelphia for the big races. Alan Garcia kept both horses on the inside behind a wall of competitors. Perhaps that’s because they both lacked “early foot”. However, Ahvee’s Destiny went nowhere fast (or should I say slow) and finished up the track in 9th. Garcia found a hole late for Awakino Cat but at the short 5 furlong distance, he couldn’t get on the board. Though he finished fast only 1 1/2 lengths behind the winner, he was in fifth place.
It was exciting to have them compete for the big purses. Hopefully, we will lengthen Awakino’s future races and see how he does with a little more time to catch the leaders.
Saratoga’s season is done. We’ll start contemplating the future in short order.
Have a good week!
