Ups and Downs

It’s Truly Ahvee ran 3rd. He was well positioned and did not have a finishing kick. Cornelio thought he needed the race because he had not raced since March. Maybe but he exhibits his usual problems, so we’ll see,

Today Jess Not Jesse is the 2-1 favorite over Awakino Cat (formerly ours) and ten others in a 5 1/2 furlong sprint on the turf. He has not run since last year at Saratoga. We hope he does well but still don’t know if the race will stay on the grass. It’s raining now and his is the last race of the day. He’s in the #9 post. We’ll be there if he runs . Cornelio is aboard.

Tonight, Cameron Lucky is in the 6th race at Saratoga Harness, It’s a lesser race for a lesser purse, but she drew the outside #8 post position, so she is only 12-1 on the morning line. We’ll try to be there too!

Tomorrow, lots of visitors start coming in, keeping us busy for the next week. Time really flies up here. It’s hard to believe we’re here for two weeks.

Ahvee’s Destiny is doing well but is beset by flies in the fields where she is corralled.

Hidden Music passed her breezing test, so the Stewards have reinstated her as a qualified runner,,. that; how crazy she was on the track. When you visit her, she is a snuggle bunny. Hard to believe!

Brother Bob goes back into training now that the Vet says he has recovered enough from the abrasions caused when he broke through his stall.

Footsie is doing well and should race in a week or 10 days, if the weather allows.

Best,
