Hay Field is a beautiful horse with nice pedigree
From post #1, you need to get out of the gate quickly, especially in a short race, like the 5 1/2 furlong race that she participated in on Monday. Luis Reyes did not get her out of the gate quickly. Before you knew it, she was last. That’s the first of her, make that “my,” excuses.
She didn’t like clumps of grass hitting her in the face. She was intimidated by the other horses. She must have looked at the eclipse and was blinded, that’s what made her zig-zag over the track. Etc., Etc., Etc.
Bottom line: we’ll try a lower claiming price and add blinkers. As I said, she’s a beautiful horse with good pedigree. Maybe she’ll make a great broodmare!
Hope your weekend is as fun!
