On June 9th, I’ll Have Another will attempt to be the first Triple Crown winner in 34 years. We’re planning on being there to see him succeed (or not). He’s won all his races this year and seems to get better with each one. Plus, he doesn’t have Bodemeister to contend in this one!
In the meantime, we’ll have to settle for Marvelthisbliss coming in second place in the last stride for the second time in a row. I guess that’s a lot of seconds! His time was very sharp and tomorrow night his stablemate, Numismatic, will try to follow up Sunday’s win in a cheap race with a race that’s more than double Sunday’s purse size. I wonder if it will be too much for him but Eric says he’s doing better and better. Of course, the track handicapper doesn’t agree, since he’s set the Morning Line on Numismatic at 10-1. It’s race 11 at 10:25PM on Friday. He’ll becoming from Post position 2. Root for Numismatic.
Then, on Saturday, It’s Truly Ahvee will run in the fifth race at 6 furlongs on the turf (hopefully!) with Ramon Dominguez in the saddle. I haven’t touched base with Linda but I’d assume he’ll run whether or not the race stays on the turf. It seems like a wide open race. Let’s hope this Ahvee breaks his maiden!
Have a lovely holiday weekend. Think of these and other lovely horses.
