Everything does not go perfectly. Jess Not Jesse finished 3rd on Friday when he couldn’t get sufficient foothold on the very slippery grass course.
Yesterday, Patsy Symons’s horse, Effie Trinket, won the Filly Stakes race. So, we represented her in the Winner’s Circle and got some Champagne too.
We hoped it was just a dress rehearsal for Hear the Footsteps’s Stakes two races later but, despite a valiant effort, he finished third. He always tries. Both those horses do!
Cameron Lucky was coming on around the stretch turn at Saratoga Harness, when a piece of equipment broke and she had to be taken back. On top of that, she was claimed away from us. Oy!
Today, It’s Truly Ahvee emptied out after 3/4 of a mile and finished last in his race at Finger Lakes. Rhoda said he didn’t like the way the track announcer pronounced his name (he stressed the “vee,” rather than the “Ah.”
We really have been spoiled by such good luck. Still watching these magnificent animals is wonderful.
More Jewish holidays and more food… but less time to get things done. Best of all, more family time!
