With the end of the month upon us, we will have a look at your horseman account as soon as the bills arrive. Yesterday the purse was $7,000 so $4,200 (60 %) went into the account and $420 went out to pay the rider. Tammy will also receive her 10% and that will be reflected in the end of the month statement and will be paid from the account. The groom, Jose Marquez, should also be taken care of again. He has done a nice job with this filly especially in the paddock. She seems a bit high strung and he has kept her calm and focused throughout.
It is best to find a trainer that you trust to make the decisions about where and when a horse races. But it might be interesting to have input from the group on the next race. The next logical step is a non winners of three claiming race. This filly is good at the $7,500 claiming level but there are $15,000 races in the condition book. The $15,000 races at the non winner of two level have not filled though. Look for a poll posted here mid-week where you can weigh in on what level you would try this filly at.
I spoke with the track photographer and the best route to getting a win picture, if you choose, is to simply stop by her office during racing hours. We have the same arrangement as last time for pricing. DVDs of the race are also available. They are priced at $10. If you also want the first win you can get both for $15.
