Tammy was hard at work this morning preparing for a Friday night of racing. There is little time to lament when there are more than 30 horses to tend to every day. Asked about Tahitian Queen’s race she said. “I was a little down about it last night but I am over it now. We’ll get ‘em next time.”
“She came out of the race alright and cleaned up her grain. That’s a good thing. She will just walk a few days and then she’ll go back to the track on Sunday or Monday to jog.”
Tahitian Queen challenged the leader but just didn’t go by. She did dig in to hang around for second which is twice as good financially compared to third. “Maybe she needs different blinkers,” Tammy said. “She seems to want to see more. But then maybe she would just back right out.”
These are issues trainers must tackle in a game where success or failure is measured by a few feet or inches. Expect Tammy to experiment in the mornings with different blinkers.
