Crown the Cat has been entered in the $10,000 claimer non-winners of two races lifetime race restricted to fillies. The race will be run as Race #6 on Saturday. For those of you who may be superstitious, it’s interesting to note that she once again drew post #2.
In all, she faces a field of nine other rivals. On paper it appears that she should be able to compete with these; however, it is certainly a step up in class. She is one of three runners who broke her maiden in her last race.
The sixth race is scheduled to go off just after 4pm. Once again, we have reserved a spot in the Silks bar for those of you that would like to sit there before the race. We will meet outside of the walking ring right after Race #5 for those of you that would like to see her saddled.
The full list of entries:
Here is a reminder on paddock protocol from our first race:
Crown the Cat Racing Club members that would like to come in the paddock should meet near the paddock enterance gate shortly after the conclusion of the fifth race. The gate is located where the jockeys come out to enter the walking ring. Jeff and Andrew will be both be there to help direct traffic and get everyone in. We have a huge group involved, one of the largest to go into the paddock.
Crown the Cat will be wearing the white saddle towel associated to program number two. You will see a sign on the ground within the paddock with a number 2 on it just to your left when you enter the paddock. That is where Jockey Ry Eikleberry will go when he comes into the paddock. We will congregate inside the walking ring in this area.
When in the paddock, it is most important to make sure we don’t frighten the horses. As was previously mentioned, this is a large group, one of the biggest any of these horses have ever seen. Additionally, with a field of ten, it’s going to be much busier this time around.
Always keep in mind that horses have the right of way. We won’t exit the paddock until the last horse makes her way out of the walking ring en route to the track. The number one rule is to pay attention to your surroundings at all times.
All owners should feel free to watch the race from the terrace that overhangs the track. Directly in front of the finish line, there is a section reserved for horse owners. You should feel free to sit in that area during the race. If you prefer to sit in a different luck spot, by all means do so!
If we should happen to win, many of you know where to find the winners’ circle. If you don’t remember, watch the first few races to see where people gather. Should we happen to win again, we would get our picture taken in that same area.
We both look forward to seeing all of you hear on Saturday afternoon. If you have any questions about this race or about the order of operations, please feel free to post a comment below so that all can see.
Best of luck on Saturday!
We want all of the Crown the Cat owners to cheer loudly for us on Saturday. Our daughter is getting married about an hour before the race. We would sure like to see 2 events to celebrate about! How about another win!
Many congrats to your daughter! We have to miss this one too, our little boy has his 1st baseball tournament. Good luck Crown the Cat!
For anyone interested in Saturday's PP's. http://www.brisnet.com/bris_link/pdfs/vinery_259387.pdf She's as good as anyone but real head scratcher. 6-1! They don't know that CTC Racing Club bets with both fists 🙂
