Jeff and I went back to talk with Clay today to get some updates on the condition and progress of both Great Bam and Downerbythemeadow. He seems pleased with both at this point. Check out his comments first hand in the video below:
Covering some other questions that have been asked recently:
1. Neither horse really has a barn name. They typically go by their full names or shortened abbreviations of their actual names.
2. Right now it is most likely that all horses will race in Clay Brinson’s silks.
3. Clay uses a lot of different jockeys and doesn’t have any plans set in stone for your horses at this point in time. Nik Goodwin was aboard Great Bam for his workout, so he may be the most likely candidate for him. However, Clay said he will discuss that with us further when we get closer to race day.
Lastly, there is a possibility that the group will get a third horse tomorrow. There is a horse racing at Churchill that Clay has had his eye on. We’ll be sure to keep you updated if anything happens on that front.
Awesome! Pair of 5K claimers, 1st and 3rd race at CD Thur. http://www1.drf.com/static/entries/31/eCD31.html
The videos with Clay are great! I love to hear what he is thinking about.
Great news! Glad Bam and Downer are doing well. When might we get to see them in person?
A third horse? How exciting!
Glad to hear both horses are doing well, and now the possibility of a thhird? Wonderful. When they start running how will I find time to work my day job? Does Clay have any spare cots in his barn?
It seems Clay may be very familiar with a horse in race 3 at Churchill today. This particular horse also has a nice win on the local track so the pieces may be in place…..
