Marvelthisbliss won on Thursday night at Saratoga Harness. This time they didn’t catch him! It was a good win after being nipped the last two races.
Numismatic came in 4th after having to be severely checked when the horse in front of him slowed dramatically and when Numismatic tried to go to the outside, he was pinched back by a horse to his outside. Still finished fast to garner 4th place.
Awakino Cat finished 3rd today at Belmont. After a good beginning, Alan Garcia took him back than seemed to sit on him quietly for most of the race. He said he was breathing funny. When he was scoped after the race, he was suffering from palate displacement with an ulcer on his throat. He will be evaluated for possible surgery in the next few days.
After today’s race, we went to see the Mets sweep the Cardinals tonight. Lots of action… but we worry about Awakino Cat. Ahvee’s Destiny had similar surgery and it helped her. We’re hoping for the best.
Have a good week. Next weekend the Belmont Stakes with I’ll Have Another looking for the first Triple Crown in 34 years on Saturday and the Tonys where our play, Peter and the Starcatcher is up for 9 Tonys (most of any play) but we’re not favored to win much. Nonetheless, we can hope!
