First of all, it’s going to be a busy weekend for you! High Spirit has been entered in a $5,000 claiming race for non-winners of two races in the year. The race went with 8 entries and will be run as the fourth race on the card on Saturday.
Denny Velazquez is again named to ride and the field looks a bit easier than the group we ran against last time.
Yes, that means that you have a horse entered on Friday night (Lovely Tak) and Saturday afternoon (High Spirit).
Therefore, we are going to split the paddock groups as follows:
Friday (Lovely Tak – Race 4 – 8:28PM): Last Names Beginning with A – L
Saturday (High Spirit – Race 4 – Approx 3:00PM): Last Names Beginning with M – Z
Per usual, if you would like to join the group in the paddock, please be sure to arrive outside of the paddock shortly after the conclusion of the previous race.
Plans for a Second Backside Tour
We are going to host a second tour on Sunday, August 26 at 9:30 a.m. Please RSVP with Jeff or Andrew by e-mailing them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will take a spin through the backside, see the pool, visit the barn and watch a workout (if time permits).
