Tahitian Queen is listed at 7/2 on the morning line for Saturday’s race. I wrote the program comments last night and have her as my second selection. The horse to beat is Nortern Winn. She finished second in TQ’s race earlier this month off a big class drop. There is a decent amount of speed here so TQ should sit the trip. If Jose can keep her close enough it seems they could close. Cryptic Affais also beat TQ last time and Sneaky Irish Lass exits the same race but she just didn’t fire.
Kevin Gorg will select TQ as the winner in his Minneapolis Star Tribune analysis. I too think she has a big chance here. It isn’t easy to handicap objectively when you want to make something happen. If you have thoughts about the race please post a comment.
Account Status: after paying the vet bill from July the balance is at $11,036.67. There will be an August training bill as well as a vet bill. Eyeballing the math, you need TQ to run big here.
Thanks to those that were able to show up for the stable tour last night. Great to see all of you. Tammy apologizes for not being there but work called her away to Chicago. She saddles one there today and then flys back to saddle two here tonight.
It was nice to visit TQ at her "home", and we'll be there to cheer her on Saturday. Darlene
