Crown the Cat finished 6th today. She never really got into the race. Maybe she came back too quick but at the end of a meet that often happens.
It has been quite a journey this summer. Two wins and three thirds is pretty darn good. I hope that everyone enjoyed the experieicne.
Thanks to Cby and all involved – it was a really fun experience. The days we hit the winners circle it seems like a blur, but a good blur.I hope CtC came out of the race healthy and has a good life with her new 'mommy' and becomes a great mommy herself one day.I don't think we will break even on the original investment (never expected to) but a winning experience is worth a whole lot more than what it is going to end up costing us – thanks again to Cby, Jeff, Andrew, Angela, Kenny, Kevin and anyone else I should have listed.
Too bad Ry was out of town, and the hard bump at the break didn't help. Thanks Jeff for all the facts and organization of this site. Hopefully it will happen again next yr!
I think the thing we all need to take out of this, is realizing how crucial getting slots machines here is for the survival of the industry. We had 2 wins and 2 thirds…something most owners would dream of, and we'll all get back what, 75% max of our money? Makes you realize how many in this game in Minnesota are struggling. Call your legislator today!
Thanks to all involved with this group. It was a great experience and we did get to see a bit of everything. I was relieved to see CTC come jogging back after the race to move on to her next phase of life. I second Ryan's comment about Racino and how it will help racing. Just think what even an extra $2000 per race would have done (1,200 per win).
