The Other Side of the Coin

Well, Clay contacted Jeff and I this morning and said he was interested in claiming Smokin Silver out of today’s fourth race at Hawthorne. After taking a look at the horse, Clay decided to place a claim on him. Unfortunately, two claims were made for Smokin Silver and this time, we lost the shake.

Smokin Silver went off as the prohibitive favorite at 2-5 and held on for a narrow victory. He looked like a horse that would be very competitive here going five and one-half or six furlongs. It just wasn’t meant to be.

Therefore, we’re 1 for 2 in the claiming game. We’ll continue to work with Clay to try to find another horse. Horse racing is a game of ups and downs. It didn’t work out today but we’ll keep trying to find another horse before the start of the season.

  1. Oh….good try Clay! It comes and it goes. It would be great to have a second horse if we can find one, but I’m excited to see Bam as well.

      • No worries. We’re excited too… just in a bit of a logistical bind without someone on the ground in Chicago with the right technology. If we can’t get one sent to us, we’ll be sure to be on site when he arrives! Thanks for your patience.
