TQ ran well when she could have packed it in. Jose was not happy that she wouldn’t go by in the stretch. He rode her well; asked her to go when she needed to and had her where she needed to be. She just did not kick in. Second isn’t all bad. I asked Tammy what’s next and she indicated it is right back at this level.
We will summarize the account soon now that the June bills are arriving.
I hope everyone enjoyed their evening at the track. Two wins, a second and a fourth is very good!
Someone in a previous blog post brought up some great questions, “What happens after a horse races? How does one determine which horses go to the test barn? What happens in the test barn?” These questions have been answered below by your trainer Tammy Domenosky, steward Noble Hay Jr., and assistant commission veternarian Christy Klatt.
In the video above, Tammy discusses Tahitian Queen’s daily routine before a race in terms of feeding, cooling, shoes, and the test barn.
On a sunny Sunday, Tammy discusses Tahitian Queen’s future race this Thursday. In the video she analyzes competition, why Tahitian Queen fits in this race, and why she did not put her in the $15,000.
