Welcome to “Mundy”

The Club claimed it’s second and final horse (for now) of the 2013 season, turf specialist MUNDY out of the 4th race today at Canterbury for $16,000.

Munday is 5-year old mare out of the Cherokee Run mare Conquestress by the Giant’s Causeway stallion First Samurai.

The stakes placed mare is an effective middle distance runner and had a bit of a troubled trip from the race we claimed her.  She stayed just off the pace, which is not her normal running style, and as she moved up along the rail ran into trouble causing her to be steadied a bit and losing momentum heading through the turn.  She tried to close through the lane but was unable to recover her lost momentum and still finished a nice third considering she was running against her running style and on a softer turf course that she’s been used to running.

We’ll get her back to Clay’s barn and give her the once over before starting her on the “Brinson Treatment” and seeing where she fits next!

  1. Wow – she looks like she’s a runner! 9 career wins with 2 this year already, and she’s multiple stakes placed. I’m really excited about our horses this year!

  2. Sounds great! It souns like we have to very nice horses cant wait to see them. Any word when eddy may run?

    • Eddie’s last few days on the racetrack have been promising and he’s come back feeling pretty good. Clay will have to push on him a bit harder to make sure all is well first, so we’re probably looking more at a 1st or 2nd weekend in June start assuming all stays well.

  3. Look forward to see both Ask Eddy and Mundy on the track soon! Let’s hope for some good firm turf when Mundy heads out next time. Looks like a race in the book for Ask Eddy on the 9th. Hope he’ll be ready to run.
