With so little time left in the meet it would be next to impossible to claim another horse and race again and then hope to get out on the horse when we sell it.
Leasing KoR from Mr. Donlin probably isn’t likely as he would have little to gain from the arrangement. With one chance (two if he jammed him in this weekend)left to race the horse he would only get the training day rate for three weeks and his percentage of the purse were the horse to win. Unless some sort of unique arrangement was made to divide purse money differently. But then the group would be at a disadvantage.
I am still waiting ofr the vet bills to arrive and will seek thjose tomorrow so we can see where we stand.
Meanwhile, don’t forget the new ownership seminar hosted by the MTA this Saturday.
If you are interested in the yearling auction and are atthe races Saturday, the auction begins shortly after the final in Silks Bar.
Also, on Sunday there is a fundraiser at Arizona’s Bar beginning at 6:30pm for jockey Tad Leggett, who was injured in a riding accident at Fair Meadows early in July. Tad was a regular here for years and is the leading money earner and second in wins in CBY QH history.
You can find more info on the Tad and the benefit on CBY’s blog at http://canterburypark.blogspot.com/2010/08/leggett-benefit-to-include-live-music.html
