Congratulations on your second victory of the meet! High Spirit did what he was supposed to do last night and dispatched of his competition with relative ease as the wagering favorite!
Adolfo Morales gave him a very good ride keeping him tucked inside early in the race before angling him off the rail and swinging him wide for the drive where he was able to cruise home for the victory. Click here to see the full chart. Replay below:
Additionally, he was claimed for $3,500 by trainer Clinton Venner for new owner Jill Houston. In all, not a bad way to have that one wind down as we get the plus part of the purse ($5,400) plus the claim price of $3,500.
Congratulations on the victory! We’ll be working another deal with the photographer so that you can all have a picture of the win. More information to come on that later today or tomorrow.
Next, Great Bam’s race did fill for Monday. It will be run as the second of eleven races on closing day. Post time should be approximately 2 p.m. Make plans to attend closing day and watch Great Bam! It’s the M-Z group’s turn in the paddock. Please be sure to line up outside the paddock shortly after the first race to go in as a group.
He looks to be competitive in this spot. Obviously, we’ll need a little racing luck with a full field and we’ll have to hope that he’s at a pretty high fitness level. In any case, it will be good to see him running.
Lastly, Lovely Tak has been sold for $1,500 to a member of the racing club that intends to breed her next year. This is a good solution as she’ll be going to a good home… the same home as Crown the Cat! The group will collect the $1,500 and it will be placed in the account. Lovely Tak will likely ship out early next week.
We looked for a race for her, but it was clear this morning that there weren’t going to be enough in the race to make it go. Thus, we wish her well in her new career as a mom!
