Tahitian Queen worked four furlongs this morning in 48.40 seconds.
“She galloped out really well and came back just fine,” trainer Tammy Domenosky said. “We will enter Saturday for the Thursday turf race and that one should fill.”
Below you can watch the Kare 11 piece that aired Wednesday night on the 10 P.M news. It is also going to air tonight at 10 P.M.
Thank you to David Schwartz and Randy Shaver of Kare 11 for taking an interest in the Tahitian Queen story.
More press for TQ. I was reading Daily Racing Form online and saw this..http://www.drf.com/news/article/104751.htmlHorseplayers across the nation now know about our club!Go TQ!
Thanks Ron, yet another cut-out for the TQ scrapbook!Also, a very special thanks to Janet for bringing us the beautiful lei's to the video shoot. Let's all make sure we have them on next raceday! See ya trackside…
What is the race next Thursday is taken off the turf because of rain or some other reason…would TQ's race atomatically move to the dirt or is there a chance it would cancel?
When a race is taken off the turf due to course conditions it is run on the dirt. The 71/2 furlong races become one mile as do the mile races. The 1 1/16ths stay the same distance on the main track.Horses will often scratch when the surface switch is made but I would guess with a group on N3Ls that none have established themselves as turf stars and would run eithwer way.JM
Ron, Thanks for the heads-up on the DRF article, I bet alot of us are making a scrapbook of this experience.Brett, I stopped and picked up an additional 30 lei's, so if everyone from the photo shoot brings theirs back next race day we should have enough for everyone to be in TQ's "colors"!!Janet
Could someone explain the story (color/initials) of the silks worn by the jockey for Tahitian Queen?
Without going back to look I believe Jose Ferrer is wearing the colors of the Domenosky stable. White T D on blue.We did not get around to it and probably should have tried to design Tahitian Queen Stables silks. Many owners design their own silks and have them produced. You will often see a jockey wearing a solid color that matches the saddle cloth. Those silks are provided by the track.The silks are turned into the clerk of course, Peggy Davis, who records them and submits them to the jocks' room where all silks are kept and given to the valets who handle the jockey's tack on race day.
