…to so many who responded to my “Forgiveness” message. There were many types of responses; from, “reading this makes me uncomfortable” to “I forgive you but we do have something to talk about.” Most were very complimentary and it was nice to hear from those with whom I’ve had no contact for awhile. It was also nice to clear the air by discussing the problem. I really appreciate the opportunity you give me by reading my communications. Thanks to one and all.
On the racing front, Arielle’s Song is entered in a 6 furlong race at Presque Isle Downs with Harry Vega riding. I was really glad she finished second in her last race. They say that horses know when they’ve performed well. She’s in a $7500 claimer tomorrow night. If she doesn’t get claimed, I assume it may be her last race. Good luck, Song! She’s actually the second choice based on the Morning Line.
Holy Blitzer is scheduled to re-appear on Thursday afternoon at Belmont in a $25K claimer at one mile on the turf with Ramon Dominguez aboard. It’s her first try beyond 6 furlongs, so it’s a test of sorts. Her knee seems to be okay but her hoof’s been sore. Hopefully, she’ll be good enough to go on Thursday. She looked a little sad and downtrodden when we saw her at Belmont the day Hear the Footsteps won his last race.
Hear the Footsteps should be ready for another race in mid-October but we’ll just have to see how he progresses.
Awakino Cat will officially become part of the Everything’s Cricket Racing stable today or tomorrow. Couldn’t pass up a chance to acquire a horse who has won 10 of 21 races.
Obviously Tuesday has joined the surgery list because of a bone chip in his knee. Charlie and Alex should be ready to go back to training on Oct. 1st and Calgary Enforcer should be back Nov. 1st. Katy’s Office Girl should be ready to return in October and Cricky’sGoldenEyes should also be ready in October. Exactly where they will be sent and with what intentions remain to be decided.
Ahvee’s Destiny’s blood work did not show anything special to be concerned about. This week we should decide on the proper course of action for the Queen of our Stable.
That’s it for now.
All the best,
