MUNDY HEADS TO THE POST
Canterbury Racing Club’s first race of 2013 is Friday night, June 14, when Mundy goes postward in the 4th race in a $16,000 claiming race going 7 1/2 furlongs over the turf course.
I’ll do a complete rundown of the race later in the week, but it is going to be a pretty tough race with some talented runners. Morgans a Blumin is making her return to the races in the race and last out winners Machorina and Inside Deal are also included. This is what you get once you hit the $16,000 level here – some legitimate horses in a very competitive race.
EDDY WILL WORK ONE MORE TIME
As mentioned last time, after his last work it showed that Eddy’s fitness level needed some boosting. He was scheduled to work 5 furlongs this morning but the weather postponed that move. He will go as soon as possible and then we’ll evaluate him. From what we’ve seen so far, though, all looks good and we’ll be entering for as early as next weekend.
PADDOCK AND WINNERS’ CIRCLE ACCESS
Obviously we can’t have 200 people in the paddock and winners’ circle, so I will be splitting the list of the group up and randomly assigning folks numbers 1 through 5. Group 1 will be able to access the paddock and, hopefully, winners’ circle, the first race we run. Group 2 the 2nd, Group 3 the 3rd, etc. I will send that out by email later this week so keep an eye out – it will come either directly from myself or via Jeff. Please limit access to you and one guest. With the fields filling up there is less room in the paddock and we need to be cognizant of the other owners and trainers as well as the horses in the walking ring.
