Great Bam had his first timed work in Chicago yesterday when he went four furlongs in 50.80 seconds. The work was one of three at the distance for horses trained by Clay. Schillerthekiller and Aikman, both impressive winners at Canterbury this summer, went the same distance in 47.80.
Clay talked to Jeff earlier in the week and indicated that he hopes to get Bam ready to go and run him in a $5,000 N2L on opening weekend (October 6). Obviously, that will require him to train well and for the race to go.
With that in mind, a couple of group members have indicated they are planning on making a trip down to watch him race and wanted us to post about it on the blog. (Additionally, October 6 is a big day at Hawthorne including two $100,000 races and the Grade II Hawthorne Gold Cup).
Janet and Kathy are flying down to see the races and wanted to be sure to connect with any other club members that might be planning to make the trip. Kathy asked anyone that may be making the trip to give her a call at (763)-370-3633 so that everyone can meet up at the track!
